|Name||Input > Output||Ingredients|
|Crafting Table||Wooden Plank|
|Torches||Stick + Coal|
|Wood Planks||Wood Log|
All you need to do for a plank is chop down a log from a tree and open your inventory. Then place the wood block into one of the 4 slots at the top right. Now you will have planks!
To make a stick all you need is planks! Place 2 planks on top of each other in your crafting menu and you will have made sticks. 2 planks will make 4 sticks.
To make a Torch, all you need is to find Coal and mine it, or you can even create a furnace using cobblestone and place 2 different logs or planks inside both slots. It will make charcoal! This works the same as regular coal. To craft the torch just have 1 coal and 1 plank in your crafting table or in your inventory crafting table.
Making a Furnace is super easy. First you will need a Crafting Table and 8 cobblestone blocks. Then present the blocks in a circle and you will have crafted a Furnace. Furnaces are required for turning raw food into cooked food, for turning ore into ingots, and for turning wood into coal.
Crafting Tables are a necessity in Minecraft and that is because it allows you to craft all items in the game. Without a crafting table you wouldn’t be able to craft anything. To make one takes 8 planks.
