In this guide, we’ll show you how to create a diamond pickaxe. What you’ll need:
Step 1 – Gather logs
Collect a few logs by punching out a tree (any kind of tree will do).
Step 2 – Create planks
Using a crafting table, place the logs in any single cell of the grid to create planks in the output box.
Step 3 – Create sticks
Now, place two planks in the center column of the crafting grid, one in each of the bottom and middle cells of your crafting table to create sticks.
(You can look at your numpad, if you have one, and the placement on the crafting grid would correspond to the “2” and “5” keys, which we can refer to as cell 2 and cell 5.)
Step 4 – Mine some diamonds
0:19 – Using an iron pickaxe, mine three pieces of diamond ore. You can generally find diamond ore in levels 12 to 15 of caves or mines. This will immediately yield you three diamonds.
Step 5 – Place the sticks
0:37 – Then place two sticks in the center column of the crafting grid, one in each of the bottom and middle cells of your crafting table.
(These would be cells 2 and 5.)
Step 6 – Place the diamonds
0:46 – Now, place diamonds in the top-left, middle-center, and top-right cells of the crafting grid.
(These would be cells 7, 8 and 9. )
Step 7 (Optional) – Get into the swing of things
You heft your diamond pickaxe and watch the sunlight sparkle off the tip of the pick. After giving it a few practice swings, you judge it as well-balanced as any pickaxe you’ve held. This was definitely well worth all the effort it took to craft it.
Time to get started on your next project then. You turn and head back on the path that will eventually lead you to that deposit of obsidian you came across not too long ago.
