    How To Make Tools In Minecraft


    How to Make Tools in Minecraft


    Minecraft Coding For Kids

    Making tools in Minecraft is a great way to get your creative juices flowing and become an expert in the game. Initially, you’ll have to do a lot of punching and digging through your hands in order to obtain raw materials. 

    These raw materials will then help you in making tools and also aid the construction of other things such as houses, boats, food, etc. Whether you are playing on a PC, console, or mobile device, crafting tools can be one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences available.

    By following a few basic steps, you can quickly learn how to make tools from scratch and upgrade them as needed. Let’s start from the basics – 

    1. How to make sticks

    To make sticks in Minecraft, you need wood logs. You get them from trees. Each type of tree has a different kind of log. You can turn the logs into planks. Then you can turn the planks into sticks. It takes two planks to make four sticks.

    1. First Locate a tree, you can find it anywhere around where you spawn. 

    With the help of the following keys you can move around to find trees –

    W- you move forward 

    A – Move Left

    S – Move Backwards 

    D – Move Right 

    Space – Jump

    2. Now, in order to extract the blocks- 

    • Point your mouse in the direction of the tree
    • Punch the tree by left-clicking on your mouse

    3. Pick up the blocks that fall to the ground as they will be useful in making planks. Just move forward with the ‘W’ key and walk over the block, it will get stored in your inventory.

    6. From 1 Log you’ll get 4 Planks. Left-click on the planks and put them in your inventory. Now, place two planks oriented vertically, with one at the top and the other immediately below it. 

    If you right-click on the plank then the whole set will come up but if you left-click on the set of planks then it will be divided into half in inventory and you can also put one plank at a time in the crafting menu by the left-click.

    2. Add Items to make a Wooden Axe

    To make a wooden axe, place 3 wood planks and 2 sticks in the 3×3 crafting grid.

    • When making a wooden axe, it is important that the wood planks and sticks are placed in the exact pattern as shown in the image below. 
    • There should be 2 wood planks placed in the first row (the last box in the row should be left empty). 
    • In the second row, 1 wood plank should be in the first box and 1 stick should be in the second box (the last box in the row should be left empty). 
    • In the third row, 1 stick should be in the middle box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a wooden axe.
