The Crafting Bench is one of the most important utilities in LEGO Fortnite, and it allows players to craft everything from tools to weapons, including Charms and the very sought-after Glider. If you want to upgrade your Crafting Bench to get better tools, we’ve got you covered.

LEGO Fortnite allows players to explore huge randomly generated maps in search of all kinds of resources spread across different biomes. But to get useful resources and materials, players need all kinds of tools, from axes to pickaxes, as well as shovels and more. Additionally, to face the many dangers LEGO Fortnite poses, players also need to equip themselves with weapons, shields, and Charms.

To get all these essential items, players need a Crafting Bench in their village, and to get better tools over time, they’ll need to upgrade it. So, without further ado, here’s how to build and upgrade the Crafting Bench in LEGO Fortnite.
