In this guide, we’ll show you how to create a gold shovel. 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 gold
0:26 – Using an iron pickaxe, mine one piece of gold ore. You can generally find gold in caves or mines.
Step 5 – Smelt the gold
0:33 – Place the gold in your furnace to smelt it into gold ingots. You can use the logs you gathered as fuel.
Step 6 – Place the sticks
0:52 – 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 7 – Place the gold ingot
0:58 – Now, place a gold ingot in the top-middle cell of the crafting grid.
(This would be cell 8. )
Step 8 (Optional) – Look at the shiny
Wow. A golden shovel. Look how shiny it is. Yep, that is one good piece of craftsmanship indeed.
No the most durable of implements, but it’ll get the job done after a fashion.
And hey, at the very least you can use it to admire your own undeniably attractive mug.
