The Raft has a pretty in-depth crafting system. So you will need to find many items as you play the game. One of these items is the Glass. Here is how you can get it.

In Raft, you end up on a small Raft at the start of your journey. But it doesn’t take much to expand the Raft. But, even though you are expanding your Raft, the shark in the ocean can bite off parts of your Raft. So, keep an eye on it as you are expanding.

Aside from that, you can create many items with the crafting system in Raft. But with the wide variety of crafting comes a wide variety of materials. Knowing and tracking down every type of material can be challenging initially.

One of the items you need to build a lot of stuff is Glass. Glass is a valuable item in the Game. From binoculars to the Water purifier, all of them need Glass to make. So here is a guide on how you can obtain Glass in the Game.

How to Get Glass in Raft

In Raft, you cannot just pick up Glass. Instead, you have to make Glass by smelting. So naturally, you will need a smelter first. After you have made a smelter, you can start the process of making Glass.

To make Glass in Raft, you will need to search for Sand. Sands are found near the island but on the sea floor. So the easiest way to get Sand is to track down an island and dive inside the ocean near the shore. There you will see blocks of Sand sitting on the ocean floor.

Use your hook to break those sand clusters to get some sand for yourself. Repeat this process for as much Sand as you need. Then, bring those back to your Raft for further processing.

Now that you have the Sand, use them on the smelter and fuel it with planks. The smelter will melt the Sand and create Glass. This is pretty much the only way you can make Glass in the Game.
