Items Needed To Make Charcoal
Steps To Make Minecraft Charcoal
1. Open Your Furnace Menu
First, let's open your furnace menu in Minecraft. It should look like the menu in the image below.
2. Add Items To Make Charcoal
In the furnace menu, we need to add the wood or log of our choice and the fuel.
Place the fuel of your choice in the bottom box and the wood or log of your choice in the top box.
After the wood has cooked in the furnace for some time, your charcoal will appear in the box to the right.
3. Move The Charcoal To Your Inventory
After your charcoal has appeared in the box to the right, simply drag it down to your inventory for use.
And that's how you get charcoal in Minecraft! You can now use it to craft torches, campfires, smelt items in a furnace and more.
