How to make a fence

You will need wood to make fences in Minecraft. You’ll be guided through the process step-by-step.

Step 1: Chop Some Wood

First, you will need wood! Find a tree of any kind and use an axe or punch to remove it. Once you have gathered enough logs to make a few planks, you can start making them.

Step 2: Create planks

You can create planks by placing the wood in the crafting area of the inventory or into a Crafting Table. You’ll get 4 planks depending on the type of log that you put into each one!

Step 3: Make Sticks

We now need to make some sticks! Your crafting area or Crafting Table will be your place. Place your wood planks, stacked one on top of the other. Each two planks that you add will yield four sticks.

It is likely that you will want to leave at most one block of space so you can put a gate.

Step 6: Build a Wooden Gate

The wooden gate can be made from the same materials as the fencing. Only the only difference is that we use slightly different amounts of planks and sticks. You will need four sticks and two planks of wood for the gate.
