How to make a sawmill in terraria – Step-by-step guide

Do you want to make a sawmill in terraria? Ok then, I will show you how to do it. So if you don’t know what can you do with a sawmill, sawmill is used for advanced wood crafting in terraria.

Finding items to make a sawmill in terraria is not a hard thing. A lot of terraria players need to make a sawmill because they can craft a bed using it (you can create a spawn point using a bed). Also, you can craft a lot of items using it.

What do you need to make a sawmill in terraria


You need 10 wood, any 2 iron bars, and a chain. Also, you will need a workbench to craft the sawmill. I will make this guide step-by-step so it will be easy to understand for you.

First, you need to find wood, so you can easily gather wood by cutting trees using your axe. After you collect them you need to craft a workbench using wood. To do it, open your crafting menu by pressing Esc and then select workbench. You need 10 pieces of wood to make a workbench but you don’t need to worry too much about it because you can collect a lot of wood from trees.


Now you need to find any iron ore to make iron bars. You can use lead or iron to do this. Now select your pickaxe and start digging until you find lead ore or iron ore. After you find iron or lead ore you can use it to craft iron bars (you can make any iron bar using 3 ores).


To craft any iron bars using ores, you will need a furnace. You can easily craft it by using 20 stones, 4 wood, and 3 torches at a workbench (You can craft 3 torches when you have 1 gel and 1 wood by going to the crafting menu).


After you have iron bars you need to make a chain using an iron bar. To craft a chain, you will need an anvil. You can craft an anvil by using 5 iron bars at a workbench.


Now make sure you have at least 10 wood, 2 iron bars, and a chain. Now take all the ingredients to the workbench and craft your sawmill.


All the ingredients that you need to craft all of this is,
24 wood, 20 stone, 3 torches, and 24 iron or lead ore

What can you craft by using a sawmill?


You can craft items such as dressers, barrels, beds, looms, benches, pianos, clocks, bookcases, etc. But most importantly you will need a sawmill to craft a loom and a bed. You can use a loom to craft silk and you need silk to craft a bed as a material. A bed is so important in terraria when you need to create spawn points.

Why you can’t make a sawmill


I saw this problem on many terraria players that they can’t make sawmill in terraria. I just have to say, make sure you have 2 iron bars(iron/lead), 10 wood, and a chain. Also, you can only craft it when you go near a workbench.
