The Carpenter, Cade Hawthorn, is among the five unlockable Craftspeople in the game Enshrouded.

His expertise lies in crafting storage, upgrading the Glider and furniture that enhances the comfort of your base, increasing the well-rested buff you get. Here's everything you need to know about the Carpenter, offering insights into his equipment and crafting abilities for a comprehensive understanding.

How to Unlock the Carpenter

You can unlock the Carpenter at the Ancient Vault - Carpenter located in far eastern part of the Springlands. Once found, use the Summoning Staff to bring him to your base. Ensure that you place him under a roof so he counts as being "sheltered."

Note that if you unlock the Alchemist first you can get the quest Carpentry Assistance, to unlock the Carpenter. This quest will reward you with an additional 75 XP. But you do not need to activate the quest before rescuing him.

Carpenter Quests

After unlocking the Carpenter, a series of quests dedicated to him becomes available, distinguishable by the saw and wooden plank icons.

Carpenter Benefits

Magic Chest Storage

The Carpenter can craft Magic chests in both medium and small sizes. Materials placed inside a Magic Chest can be used in any manual crafting efforts across the base, as if they were in your own inventory. For example if you store stone in the chest you can then craft stone blocks without having any stone in your inventory. This makes organisation of materials much less annoying.

Glider & Grappling Hook Upgrades

The Carpenter will unlock recipes for improved variations of both the Glider and Grappling Hook. These can be unlocked progressively by completing the Carpenters quests.

You can find a list of all the legendary Gliders and Grappling Hooks and how to get them here.

Well-Rested Buff

The Well-Rested buff is possibly the best stat boost you can get in Enshrouded, the Carpenter assists with extending the length of the well-rested buff by improving comfort levels in your base. Once he's part of your base, you gain the ability to craft a range of furniture, from beds to fireplaces, tables, and torches. As you progress in the game and acquire better resources and more of his tools, the quality of furniture you can create improves, significantly boosting the comfort level and extending the rested buff duration.
