If you’re a fan of Valheim, you’re likely always looking for ways to improve your gameplay and make life a little easier in the game. Extracting sap is necessary for some constructions and can be a time-consuming task. Fortunately, creating a sap extractor can save you a lot of time and energy.

This step-by-step guide will show you how to make a sap extractor in Valheim. We’ll cover all the materials you’ll need, as well as the steps necessary to construct the extractor. Once you’ve completed this guide, you’ll be able to extract sap at a much faster rate, giving you more time to focus on other tasks in the game.

So, without further ado, let’s get started on making your very own sap extractor!


Before you begin to make a sap extractor, you need to ensure that you have the necessary items that will be used during the process. Some of the required items include:

  • Hammer: This is essential in building structures and other objects in the game. You need to have a hammer to construct the sap extractor.
  • Copper: You need 10 units of copper to craft the bronze nails that will be used to construct the sap extractor.
  • Tin: You need 5 units of tin to craft the bronze nails that will be used to build the sap extractor.
  • Resin: You need 10 units of resin to craft the cauldron that will house the sap extractor.
  • Deer hide: You need 5 units of deer hide to make the tanning rack that will be used to turn the hide into leather scraps.
  • Leather scraps: You need 20 units of leather scraps to make the item stand that will hold the sap extractor.

Having all of the necessary items will ensure that you can make the sap extractor without any hitches. Get your items in order before you commence building.

Building the Sap Extractor

Once you have gathered all the necessary materials and tools, it’s time to begin building your sap extractor. Follow these steps:

  • Place two log poles 4 meters apart from each other, using the hammer to place them into the ground.
  • Connect the two log poles with a horizontal log beam that is 1.5 meters above the ground. Use the hammer to attach the beam to the poles.
  • Add two more log poles on each side of the original two, also 4 meters apart. These will support the sap bucket.
  • Connect the two new poles to the original beam with two more horizontal log beams, one at 2 meters off the ground and the other at 3 meters off the ground. Use the hammer to attach the beams to the poles.
  • Hang your bucket on the central beam at a height of slightly less than 3 meters. The bucket should be hanging in the middle of the two new poles.
  • Use the knife to make a shallow angled cut into the tree, just deep enough to pierce the bark and reach the sap. Repeat this step on each tree that you want to extract sap from.
  • Attach the resin collector to the tree, positioning it just below the cut you made. The sap will slowly drip down and collect in the bucket.
  • Come back after several hours and the bucket should be filled with sap.

Once you have successfully built your sap extractor and gathered some sap, you’ll be able to use it to make delicious mead and other useful items. Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Using the Sap Extractor

Once you have built your sap extractor, it’s time to put it to use. To use the sap extractor, simply place it on a tree that produces sap, such as a birch or pine tree. You will know that the tree produces sap when you see sap droplets on the ground beneath it.

Once the sap extractor is placed on the tree, it will begin to collect sap over time. You do not need to do anything else. The sap collector will do the work for you. Simply return to the sap extractor periodically to collect the sap it has gathered.

To collect sap from the extractor, simply interact with it and select “collect.” The sap will be added to your inventory in stacks of 20. You can then use the sap for crafting or cooking recipes.

Be aware that the sap extractor will eventually run out of durability and break. When this happens, you will need to build a new one. To avoid this, make sure to repair your sap extractor periodically.


It’s incredibly satisfying to use a sap extractor to gather a large amount of resin in Valheim. Plus, it’s an essential resource if you want to make boats and secure your base with better defenses. Building the sap extractor isn’t a complicated process, but it requires patience and attention to detail.

Remember to place the sap extractor near pine trees and use a hammer to hit the trees with a horizontal swing. You’ll see the resin flowing through the extractor’s spout, and you can collect it with a container. You’ll need to wait a while before the extractor fills up completely, but it’s worth the wait.

If you’re playing with friends, you can create a network of sap extractors to speed up the resin gathering process. Just make sure to empty them frequently, so they don’t overflow and waste resin.

We hope this step-by-step guide has been helpful and that you’re enjoying your Valheim experience. Happy crafting!
