Latin words like crematorium and vomitorium seem to be made from verb + -torium
Is there a pattern to this I can follow for arbitrary verbs?
Furor + -torium = furotorium
Farcio + -torium = Farcitoroum
Or is there something else to it?

Almost there, but the -t- belongs to the verb, not suffix. In particular, it's the fourth principle part (the supine/perfect participle) of the verb.
For the verb:
vomo, vomere, vomui, vomitus (or -um)
Take vomitum, drop the -us, add the adjectival ending -orius, and then use it in the neuter substantively, which yields vomitorium.
The respective perfect participial forms for furor and farcio are furatus and far(c)tus, which would yield the potential words *furatorium and *far(c)torium.
