Shelves and Display Cases being used.

In order to store items, a player must use a container. Containers can be divided in two groups: Stationary and Portable.

Stationary Containers

Stationary containers can be transported when empty. They must be placed before items can be added and cannot be transported with items inside. Stationary containers such as baskets, chests, tool racks and shelves are crafted using the grid crafting mechanic. Pottery containers are crafted using the clay forming mechanic.

Regular Containers

Grid Tool mold rack.png Tool mold rack A tool mold rack is made from sticks and boards and can hold up to 5 tool or weapon molds. Similar to the tool rack it needs to be placed against a wall.
Grid shelf.png Shelf A shelf is made from planks and sticks and holds 8 fired clay items including crucibles, food crocks, and bowls. A shelf can also hold other items like shoes, ingots, crystals, honey combs, rusty gears or fuel and ore bits - like charcoal or copper chunks. The shelf can also hold food items like bread and meat directly - although those will rot on a shelf just like normal, and leave behind oddly formed rot shapes.

Additionally, a shelf is the only place that can be used for cheese ripening.

Display case.png Display Case A display case is made from glass and boards and can hold up to 4 items, each in a separate slot. Similar to the shelf, the items will be displayed visibly. Excluding the clay items, display cases can hold the same types of items as a shelf.
Bookshelf-2row1col.png Bookshelf A bookshelf is made from and boards that is used to place and stored books. It's contents will be seen similar to the shelf, has 4 different types.
Grid Crate.png Crate A Crate allows to store a single type of item in great quantities. The amount that can be stored varies depending on the wood the crate is made from.

Meal Containers

Food storage containers are those that either hold meals, or provide a reduction in food decay. Crocks and clay pots hold meals, where as storage vessels simply provide bonuses to food items contained in them.

Image Item Name Details
Crock.png Crock Pottery vessel that holds 4 meal portions, but may also be used to store pickled veggies. The crock may be used to transport food items in a player's inventory, stored in stationary containers, placed on sold blocks and shelves. They provide a bonus to the shelf lives of foods in them, which can be further improved by sealing the crock with animal fat or bees wax.
Claypot-burned.png Clay pot Pottery vessel that holds up to 6 meal portions. Primarily used to cook meals but may still be used to store them. They do not provide the bonus that crocks do.
Storagevessel-burned.png Storage Vessel Pottery vessel with 12 slots for items. They provide spoil speed multipliers of 75% to veggies and 50% to grains. This bonus stacks with those provided by a cellar.
Decorated storage vessels may be purchased from traders or looted from ruins.

Portable containers

See also Bag

Portable containers, also known as bags, add additional player inventory slots. To expand player inventory, place containers in the four container slots located on the right side of the hotbar slots, and include basket shadows. The additional inventory slots provided by each container will appear to the left of the crafting grid in the order in which the containers are placed in the container slots. Different types of portable containers can be placed in different container slots.

They can be placed on the ground, with a spoilage rate equivalent to being in your inventory.

Unequipping Containers

When a container is removed from the extended inventory slots in the hotbar, the content inside will remain in the container. Only empty containers can be placed inside inventory slots. Be sure to move the content from the container before removing or sharing it.

Stacking Placeable Items

Some items such as metal ingots, planks, peat bricks, firewood can be stacked on solid blocks. This can be practical and decorative because stacked items are easier to compared to items in chests. Charcoal can also be stacked, but the blocks are gravity affected like sand. Also, molds, bowls, and pots may be placed on solid blocks.
