Crafting Table

Crafting Table


These are the dimensions of the traditional/most current crafting table as of the TU7 (1.01) update.

The Crafting Table (workbench) is one of the most essential blocks in Minecraft. It has a grid on top and tools on the side faces, and shares the bottom texture with Wooden Planks. Crafting Tables can naturally occur in NPC Villages.


Pressing LT on a Crafting Table (placed not while in your Inventory) it will open the crafting menu. Unlike the PC Version, the Xbox/Playstation Edition's version of the Crafting Table has all the items you can craft on the screen instead of the player having to place the items around themselves in the PC's version. To create a Crafting Table, the player needs 4 Wooden Planks (1 Wood) and crafts them together.


The Achievements you can get from Crafting a Crafting Table is 'Benchmarking', the Achievement you should get just before it is 'Getting Wood'.


  • A Crafting Table can be placed next to Lava, where it will catch fire but not burn, and after a few seconds it will stop burning and be intact.
  • The bottom of a Crafting Table is the same texture as Wooden Planks, meaning it can secretly be hidden in a the ceiling of a Wooden house.
  • Crafting Tables can be cooked in a Furnace but are not efficient as they only cook 1.5 blocks and cook for 15 seconds.
