Required To Craft An Anvil

Steps To Make An Anvil

1. Open Your Crafting Menu

Open your crafting table so you see the 3x3 grid like in the image below.

Open Your Crafting Menu

2. Add Iron Ingots And Iron Blocks

With your crafting table open, we now need to place the 4 iron ingots and 3 bocks of iron in the grid squares, just as they are shown in the image below.

Add Iron Ingots And Iron Blocks

It's important the items are placed in the squares exactly as shown in the image.

In the 1st row place down 3 blocks of iron. In the 2nd row place down 1 iron ingot in the middlebox. Lastly, in the 3rd-row place down the remaining 3 iron ingots. That is the Minecraft anvil recipe.

After you've placed the items in the appropriate boxes, you'll notice an anvil will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move The Anvil To Your Inventory

Finally, click on your new anvil and move it down to your inventory.
