Shears are a tool you can use to obtain wool from sheep and can also mine a few types of blocks in a pinch.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to create one. They’re quite easy to make and you just need the following:
Step 1 – Mine some iron
0:19 – Using a stone pickaxe, mine one piece of iron ore. You can generally find iron in caves or mines.
Step 2 – Smelt the iron
0:34 – Place the iron 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.
Step 3 – Place the iron ingots
0:37 – Now, place an iron ingot in the bottom-middle and middle-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 “2” and “6” keys, which we can refer to as cell 2 and cell 6.)
Step 4 (Optional) – Find some sheep
You now have shears! Well done!
Now that you have them, it’s time to put them to good use. You’ve always wanted to decorate your house with some wool blocks, maybe in a nice shade of blue or even magenta. You can just imagine it now. It’s going to be epic.
Those sheep over there aren’t going to know what hit them.
