A crafting table is a utility block used to craft items within a 3×3 grid. When it is used, it allows a player to access the crafting grid.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The crafting table has a 3×3 grid on its top and, on the sides, various tools are depicted, including a hammer, saw, and a pair of pliers. The underside of a crafting table has a texture that is exactly like that of wooden planks.

Crafting tables will naturally generate in village libraries, witch huts, igloo basements, and in woolen tents outside Pillager Outposts.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Pressing use on a crafting table will open the 3×3 crafting grid that allows the player to craft many more items than are available in the inventory crafting grid, which is only 2×2.

Crafting tables can be used as fuel in furnaces, smelting for 1.5 operations.

Crafting tables can also be used to repair damaged tools, weapons, and armor. This is done by combining two damaged items of the same material side-by-side in the crafting grid. This method of repair does not require any experience but removes any enchantments on either or both items.

Mining[edit | edit source]

A Crafting Table can be harvested with any tool or by hand, but an axe is the fastest.
