Required To Make A Grindstone

  • 2 Planks (any type)
  • 2 Sticks
  • 1 Stone slab

Steps To Make A Grindstone

1. Open Your Crafting Menu

To craft a grindstone, you first need to open your crafting table in Minecraft. You should see the same grid as in the image below.

Open Your Crafting Menu

2. Add The Grindstone Items To The Menu

In the crafting table, add the 2 planks, 2 sticks, and the stone slab to the grid. You can use any type of plank including oak, spruce, birch, jungle, acacia, dark oak, crimson, or warped planks. We will be using oak wood planks in this tutorial.

You must add the items to the grid exactly as shown in the image below. In the 1st row place down 1 stick in the 1st box, 1 stone slab in the 2nd box, and 1 stick in the 3rd box. In the 2nd row place down 1 wood plank in the 1st box and 1 wood plank in the 3rd box. This is the Minecraft grindstone recipe.

Add The Grindstone Items To The Menu

After you've added the items to the crafting grid as described above, you'll notice the grindstone in the box on the right.

3. Move The Grindstone To Your Inventory

Lastly, drag the grindstone down to your inventory so you can use it.
