How does crafting work now?

Do you have to be standing at a table? If so, how do you cook? Trying to cook meat at a campfire and the progress is stuck at 0

When you try to craft an item, now, it will ask you to wield the item (which makes sense that you need your hands for crafting) and then it should begin crafting the item.

Sometimes, I’m not sure of the criteria, it drops it at your feet instead. If you have a partially crafted item, pick it up and 'a’ctivate it. This should allow you to resume crafting where you left off.

You don’t NEED a table or workbench, as far as I understand that just speeds up how long it takes to craft. I’m not sure if that applies to all items or just some things.

Ahh, okay. Thank you lol.
