The Carpenter is a Machine Block added by Forestry.

It acts somewhat like a crafting table that needs to be powered by an Engine. It requires water for most recipes, or some other liquids, such as Seed Oil, for some recipes. It is used for a variety of recipes such as the Basic Circuit Board, Woven Backpacks, and the Apiary.

In order to place an item in the recipe area, you use a left click. This will not take or consume any resources; it places a "ghost" item. Right-click to remove an item from the recipe area. The required liquid for the recipe must be put into the internal tank, and the required materials must be placed in the inventory at the bottom of the Carpenter GUI.

In order to automatically refill the Carpenter with materials, connect pipes to the bottom, and the items will be put in the Carpenter's lower inventory. The Carpenter will automatically draw out items from it when needed.

Note: When connected to BuildCraft Fluid Pipes, the Carpenter will waste liquid while the pump is running. it is recommended to use Liquiducts instead

Working with Routers[edit]

Using a Factorization Router to insert items into the Carpenter is as seen in the image below Note that slot 2 as well as slots 21+ do not exist and do not accept items

The slots of a Carpenter, as they apply to a Factorization Router. (tested on Mindcrack 8.3.2).
