Wooden Slabs are a half-block made entirely of any kind of Wood (match type). Slabs are decorative blocks that can make houses or structures look better. The previous Texture used to have knots in the wood however, the new one does not. They can be used as a longer alternative to Stairs, as a Player and mobs automatically walk on the top of half-blocks without jumping. They can also be used as an alternative to Fences, as one can create a one-and-a-half hit-box similar to fences by placing a slab on top of a regular block. Top-based slabs can support blocks on their top side. Redstone placed on top of a slab cannot power a redstone wire diagonally downwards, but can be powered by that redstone wire. It also does not obstruct redstone currents in the way that solid blocks do. Wooden slabs can also be used as fuel for furnaces, blast furnaces and smokers, smelting 3/4 of an operation.

Wooden slabs are crafted with 3 wooden Planks of the same variety in a horizontal line. This always creates 6 wooden slabs.
