How To Craft in Minecraft
Most crafting recipes in Minecraft, require you to have access to the 3x3 crafting grid. To gain access to this, you will need a Crafting Table.Step 1
To create a crafting table, you will need to find 1 block of wood (any type). This can be acquired by hitting a tree. When you have 1 block of wood, press "E" to open your inventory, and place the wood in the 2x2 crafting grid as shown in the screenshot below.
The wood block will give you 4 wooden planks. Take the wooden planks and place them in the crafting grid to make a crafting table.
Now take the crafting table and place it in the bottom of your inventory. Select it and right click anywhere on the ground.
To use the crafting table, just move close to it and right click on it. You now have access to the 3x3 crafting grid and you can use all the crafting recipes.
