The Furnace, one of the most essential and important items in Minecraft, is the first thing you make. This will enable you to melt ore into ingots, which can be used for crafting tools and armor, as well as cooking food that will make your survival easier. Let’s now take a look at the steps involved in making a Furnace.
How to Make a Furnace
You will need wood to make a furnace in Minecraft. Crafting TableCreate a pickaxe. Then, mine some stone for the tool! Below, we’ll show you how to do it step by step.
Step 1: Gathering a Wood Log
We’re likely to be just beginning, so we will need to collect a wood log. You can also punch a tree. Although this is a slow process, it can be speeded up by using an axe in the future. For now, we don’t really need an axe. Simply punch the trunk of a tree to gather wood.
While you only need one log of wood to make the Crafting Table, it’s a good idea to grab three or four. We will need them later.
Step 2: Make wood planks
Once we have a log of wood, it’s time to make planks. Open your inventory and place the log in the crafting area.
For each log that is placed in the wood box, we get four planks. This is exactly what we need. Grab the newly-crafted planks of wood and place them in your inventory or toolbar.
Step 3: Design the Crafting Table
To make the final step, keep the inventory open. Crafting Table.
Grab the Crafting Table from your toolbar and place it in your menu (bottom bar). Next, close your inventory and select the Crafting table to place on the ground.
Step 4: Make Sticks
You can turn any wood logs you have not turned into planks now, even if you don’t have all the wood logs. You’ll need three sticks. To create planks like this, place two planks in your Crafting Table.
Place the sticks in your inventory.
Step 5: Make the Wooden Pickaxe
Put three wooden planks on the top of your Crafting table window. Then, place two sticks in the middle. You’ll find a Wooden Pickaxe when you complete the box as shown below.
Grab your pickaxe, and put it in your toolbar.
Step 6: Find Stone
You can find stone all over the country! It can be found in caves or in different formations. If all else fails, you can also dig into dirt and sand to find it. If you do decide to dig, be sure not to go too deep! This is the most important rule of Minecraft. If you dig down, you could end up in a hole or even lava. Once you have found the stone you want, you’ll need to mine it with your pickaxe to get eight pieces of cobblestone.
Step 7: Create the Furnace
Simply return to your Crafting Table, place the eight cobblestones in a ring and leave the center empty.
Grab the Furnace from the creation window, and then place it in your inventory.
By placing any item in the Furnace inventory, you can use it as fuel. Charcoal, Coal, and Wood Logs are the most popular fuels. Coal will be found quite often while mining. This is worth finding for fuel or making Torches. If you don’t have the time to mine, wood logs and planks are a good option.
