The first thing to do when playing Minecraft free for the first time is always to build your crafting table. Once that is done and you’ve planted any and all saplings that you encountered, you can move onto building tools. There are a number of different tools that can all be used for different thing, like farming and mining. In order to start crafting a tool using your crafting table, you will need to go into the crafting screen. You can choose to go onto the personal crafting screen as well, but most players prefer to use the crafting table screen. You access the crafting screen by E key. The following will explain how to craft a wooden pickaxe as an example.
- First off, you’ll want to position two of
the wooden planks that you’ve collected vertically on the area where
you’ll be crafting.
- After placing your planks, you can then
move on to pressing the inventory key.
- After pressing the inventory key, there
should be four sticks left on your crafting table as the result.
- Take the sticks and arrange them in a
T-shape on the crafting table.
- Add wooden block on top of this T-shape.
- Craft, and you’ll have created a wooden
If you’re playing on Xbox, all of this is even easier. There’s no need to position items when crafting. Crafting on an Xbox can all be done from the menu with zero extra effort. While the wooden pickaxe is weak, it’s a great starting point for new players. Once you discover some stone, you can start crafting a few stronger items. When playing Minecraft free, it’s all about trying to get the highest quality materials that you can find. First wood, then stone and from there on out you can customize as you choose.
