Crafting a Drying Rack in Sons of the Forest

To build a Drying Rack, you’ll need 13 sticks. The good news is that you’ll find sticks laying around all over the island, so just look out on the floor and especially in the forest areas and you should be able to get a bunch.

If all else fails, and you’re not either killed Kelvin or have him doing something else, you can always send him on a mission to fetch you a bunch of sticks until you’ve got enough.

Now that you’ve got your sticks, go ahead and press B to open up the crafting menu and select the ‘Storage’ option.
