Crafting is an ability all players can perform in DayZ Standalone in which they may combine or transform one or multiple items to produce a new item or change a state of one.
Crafting items is done by having the applicable items in your main inventory and right-clicking on the starter item, or dragging an item over another, in which case a menu will appear showing possible actions that item can be used in. If that item can be used in multiple recipes, those recipes will also display. An orange colour around an item being dragged ontop of another indicates that they can be combined in some way.
