Steps To Make A Minecraft Composter
1. Open Your Crafting Menu
To craft a composter, you first need to open your crafting table in Minecraft. You should see the same grid as in the image below.
2. Add The 7 Wood Slabs To The Menu
In the crafting table, add the 7 wood slabs to the grid. You can use any type of wood slab including oak, dark oak, spruce, birch, jungle, or acacia wood.
You must add the slabs to the grid in the same pattern as shown in the image below. In the 1st row place down 1 wood slab in the 1st box and 1 wood slab in the 3rd box. In the 2nd row place 1 wood slab in the 1st box and 1 wood slab in the 3rd box. In the 3rd row place down the remaining 3 wood slabs, one in each box. This is the Minecraft composter recipe.
After you've added the items to the crafting grid as described above, you'll notice a composter in the box on the right.
