In this guide, we show you how to create an Iron Axe.

Step 1 – Gather your materials

0:05 – To create a stone axe, you’ll need the following:

  1. Two sticks.
  2. A stone pickaxe.
  3. A crafting table.
  4. A furnace.
  5. Fuel for your furnace.
  6. And three pieces of iron, which you can find in caves and mines. Use your stone pickaxe to mine them.
Mining iron.

Step 2 – Smelt the iron

0:33 – Place the iron in your furnace to smelt it into iron ingots.

Smelting iron.

Step 3 – Place the sticks

0:49 – Now, place two sticks in the center column of the crafting grid, one in each of the bottom and middle cells of your crafting table.

(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.)

Place the sticks.

Step 4 – Place the iron ingots

0:43 – Now, place one iron ingot each in the top-middle, top-right, and middle-right cells of the crafting grid.

(Those would be cells 8, 9, and 6.)

Place the iron ingots.

Step 5 (Optional) – Pat yourself on the back

Congrats! After all that mining, smelting, and crafting you now have an Iron Axe! Give yourself a pat on the back, you deserve it.

Iron axe!

You are now much more efficient at chopping things. Use it wisely.
