Mining iron ore.

Step 2 – Smelt the iron ore

0:31 – Place the iron ore in your furnace to smelt it into iron ingots. You can use different fuel sources to power your furnace, we use logs since they’re easy to acquire.

0:47 – Now, place iron ingots in the bottom-left, middle-left, top-left, bottom-middle, center-middle, top-right, middle-right, and bottom-right cells of the crafting grid.

(You can look at your numpad, if you have one, and the placement on the crafting grid would correspond to the “1”, “4”, “7”, “2”, “5”, “9”, “6”, and “3” keys, which we can refer to as cells 1, 4, 7, 2, 5, 9, 6, and 3.)
