A Masonry Bench allows players to craft construction blocks into decorative variants.


Masonry Benches can be mined using any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it drops nothing.

The Masonry Bench's GUI when crafting

The Masonry Bench can be right clicked to open its GUI. There are two slots in the Incubator GUI, one acts as an input for blocks, and the other as an output for blocks.

When a block is put into the input slot, the section on the left side will be filled with a list of craftable blocks. Left clicking one will put it into the output slot. This will not consume the input block though, as the input block is only consumed when taking a block out of the output slot.
