When Minecraft just came or was introduced to us, that time there was only one item for storage and that was Chest. But day by day after many updates now we can see a total of three different items, and all of them are especially used to store things.
The first item that came after the chest is a shulker box, and the second one is the barrel. You can easily get shulker box at the end, but that’s completely another topic. Today I am going to say about How to make a barrel in Minecraft, or in short, I am gonna talk about Barrel.
How to make a barrel in Minecraft
In some simple words if I talk about how to make a barrel in Minecraft then first all you have to do is open the 3×3 crafting table.
After that, you have to put 3 planks each in the first and third columns. Now place oak slabs in the 1st and 2nd boxes of the second column. After doing these you will see that a barrel has been made, and appeared on the right side of the crafting table.
What is Barrel in Minecraft?
A barrel is another alternative item of Minecraft chest. However, unlike the chest, you will see that it doesn’t require air space above it to be opened.
You can obtain a barrel so easily by crafting or by going to any fisher cottage in villages. I already said How you can craft a barrel in Minecraft but if you still didn’t understand then stay tuned.
In a Minecraft fisher cottage, you can get Up to 3 barrels, so you can also try this.
Facts: A barrel can be moved so easily by using water flow, lava flow, and even by pistons. However these will not affect the barrel, so it’s a safe way to move the barrel.
The second fact is A lava can create fire in air blocks next to barrels as if the barrel was flammable. Still, the interesting fact about this is after all that the barrel will not catch fire and because it can’t be burned.
Required materials to make a barrel in Minecraft
To craft a barrel you will need two different items for two different versions. Yes, you heard right you will need 6 Wooden Planks, and 2 Wooden Slabs, if you are playing java edition. But in case if you are playing bedrock edition then you will need 6 sticks and 2 wooden Slabs.
- Java Edition
- 6 Wooden Planks
- 2 Wooden Slabs
- Bedrock Edition
- 6 Sticks
- 2 Wooden Slabs
Now without further ado let me tell you how you can gather these materials so easily.
You can easily get planks from logs. All you have to do is go to any nearby tree and start hitting the tree block until you get logs from it.
Note: Use Axe for better result and save your time cause if you do with hand then it will take a lot of time.
Now all you have to do is put the log into the 2×2 crafting menu to get planks from the log.
How to craft wooden slabs
The simple and easiest way, if I say how to make wooden slabs then all you have to do is put 3 planks in the crafting table horizontally.
To make sticks in Minecraft all you have to do is put two planks inside the crafting table vertically and after that, you will see that sticks have appeared on the right side of the crafting table.
How to make barrels in Minecraft (step by step)
First, all you have to do is open the crafting table. There you will see a 3×3 crafting grid just like the image I shared in the below image.
If you are using the java edition then you have to place 3 planks vertically in the 1st column and place 3 more planks in the 3rd column.
In case if you are using the bedrock version then you have to place 3 sticks vertically in the 1st column and place 3 more sticks in the 3rd column.
If you did everything just as I said then congratulation, you made your first barrel and now you can collect it in your inventory.
