Automate is a mod for Stardew Valley, created by Pathoschild.
Put a chest next to any number of machines (like furnaces or crystalariums), and they'll take raw items from the chest and push their finished items into it. Press U (configurable) to show an automation overlay:
Place a chest next to a crafting machine (in any direction including diagonal) to connect it. Machines connected to a chest will push their output into it, and pull ingredients to process out of it.
This can be used to automate...
casks (even outside cellar);
crystalariums (once started with the gem/mineral you want);
furnaces (don't forget they also need coal);
incubators (for eggs);
shipping bin? (configurable);
statues of endless fortune;
statues of perfection;
and worm bins.
Automated machines will give you the same XP, achievements, and items you'd get for using them directly.
You can also automate greenhouse crops, indoor pots, animal produce, and forage by installing Deluxe Auto-Grabber and connecting a chest to its auto-grabber.
You can connect any number of chests and machines into a 'machine group', just by placing each chest/machine so it's touching another one. You can press U (configurable) to visualise your machine groups. See some machine setups for examples.
If you add multiple chests to the same machine group, they'll all be used in the automation. Input will be taken from all the chests, and output will be sent to chests in this order:
chests edited using Chests Anywhere? to enable 'prefer this chest for output';
chests which already contain an item of the same type;
You can optionally configure objects or paths as connectors, which link machines together. For example, here are wooden paths used as connectors:
