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 two pieces of diamond ore. You can generally find diamond ore in levels 12 to 15 of caves or mines. This will immediately yield you two diamonds.

Step 5 – Place the stick

Step 6 – Place the diamonds

(These would be cells 5 and 8. )

You now have an awesome diamond sword! In your hands it will be a sparkling instrument of justice. Monsters will tremble at the very sight of your sword.
