2. Add The Smithing Table Items To The Menu

In the crafting table, add the 4 planks and the 2 iron ingots 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 iron ingot in the 1st  box and 1 iron ingot in the 2nd box. In the 2nd row place down 1 wood plank in the 1st box and 1 wood plank in the 2nd box. In the 3rd row place down 1 wood plank in the 1st box and 1 wood plank in the 2nd box. This is the Minecraft smithing table recipe.
