Have you been playing Minecraft and want to take your game to the next level? Making a chest in Minecraft can help you store all of your treasure or other items that you don’t need right away. With a chest, you can keep all of your important items organized and safe, allowing you to play the game with more freedom.
This guide will walk you through the process of making a chest in Minecraft. We will go over the materials needed, the steps involved, and what types of chests are available. After reading this, you should have all the information needed to make your own chest and start organizing your Minecraft world with ease.
What You Need to Know About Minecraft Chests
Making a chest in Minecraft is super simple and very useful. A chest is used to store items and helps you keep your inventory organized and your resources available when needed. To make a chest, you will need a few key items:
- wWooden planks: You can obtain these by chopping down trees with an ax.
- Crafting table: You’ll need this to craft the chest. Crafting tables are created with four wood planks, placed in a 2×2 pattern in your crafting menu.
- Furnace: To smelt the planks into ingots, you will need a furnace which is made out of eight cobblestone blocks placed in a hollow square pattern.
Once you have all of the required ingredients, it’s time to build your chest! Place the crafting table down first and then open up the 3×3 crafting menu. Place one block of wood in each square to create 8 blocks of wooden planks (also known as “wood planks”), except for the center slot which should remain empty. Next, place the 8 wooden planks in any pattern on the 3×3 grid again, except for the central square this time. Now you have created a chest that is ready to use!
Gathering the Necessary Materials to Make a Chest
Making a chest in Minecraft is no small feat. You’ll need to craft and gather several key items before assembling your chest.
The first items you’ll need are 8 wooden planks. You can get these by punching down a tree and collecting the wood that drops. Once you have 8 pieces of wood, open your crafting table and make 4 wooden sticks by placing two planks across the top and two along the bottom.
Next, you will need a single piece of coal (also known as charcoal) or charcoal block. You can find this in chests located in underground caves and dungeons, or you can craft it from a single block of coal and eight logs at your crafting table.
With these ingredients, you will have all the materials necessary to make one chest with room for 27 inventory slots!
Crafting a Chest in the Furnace Room
To craft a chest in the Furnace Room of Minecraft, you need to gather the following materials:
- 1 Crafting Table
- 4 Wooden Planks (any type)
- 2 Iron Ingots
Once you have gathered the materials, you can start crafting. Here is a step-by-step guide to crafting a chest in the Furnace Room:
- Open up your Crafting Table and place the 4 wooden planks at the top and bottom of the 3×3 crafting grid. The wooden planks should be placed as shown in the diagram below.
- Place your 2 Iron Ingots in the middle and bottom-right slots of the 3×3 crafting grid to create a Chest.
- Take your newly created Chest and drag it into your inventory for later use!
Once crafted, you can use this Chest to store items needed for your Minecraft game such as armor, tools, and weapons that you find throughout your world exploration!
Placing and Using the Chest
Making a chest in Minecraft is easy and fun – with just a few simple steps, you can start using the chest to store your items. Once you’ve crafted the chest, the next step is to place it in your world.
Start by selecting the chest in your hotbar and then right-clicking where you want to place it. The chest will appear in your world and you can now open it to access its contents. To open the chest, just left-click on it and its interface will open up on the screen.
The chest’s inventory is composed of 27 different slots, so you’ll have plenty of room for all your items. You can store things like food, tools, weapons, and even materials for crafting later on. As long as all 27 slots are filled, you won’t be able to put anything new in the chest – so make sure to take out some old items if you plan on storing more!
Once everything is stored securely away in your new chest, don’t forget to close it before running off – or else all that hard work will have been for nothing!
Crafting a Double Chest
Making a double chest in Minecraft is easy. You will need 8 pieces of wooden planks, two of each type (oak, spruce, birch, and jungle). First, open your crafting table to get the 2×2 crafting grid.
Next place four pieces of wooden planks in the top and bottom rows of the crafting grid. On the left side put two of one type and on the right side put two of another type. This will create a regular chest which will automatically transfer to your inventory.
To make it into a double chest, simply place two regular chests in the world next to each other. They will automatically combine into a single double-sized chest that can store twice as much stuff!
Additional Storage Options With Ender Chests
Ender chests in Minecraft provide another storage option for players. Ender chests are crafted using 8 obsidian blocks, and 1 eye of ender and are the only objects that can store items across all dimensions in the game.
Using an Ender chest gives players increased storage options, as it can store up to 27 stacks of items. Players can also access these items from any other Ender chest and share with their friends, making it a great way to collaborate on projects or give gifts.
The added storage options provided by Ender chests make them a great tool for any Minecraft user looking to expand their inventories. Players can access their Ender chest inventory quickly and easily, allowing them to have access to the extra materials they need when they need them.
