Every settlement has a workshop that allows the Sole Survivor to enter "workshop mode," permitting them to create structures (floors, walls, roofs, furniture, et cetera), water pumps, crops and other objects for the settlement.
Workbenches are also mostly used to store junk items and resources, but can store other items as well, such as surplus purified water and crops. With the first rank of the Local Leader perk, settlement workbenches can be connected by supply lines, allowing workbenches to share these resources.
