How to can enchant in Minecraft

For the uninitiated, enchantments in Minecraft are little perks and powerups you can use to customize your items and weapons.

They can be applied to anything to tools, such as axes, shovels, hoes, swords and all armors.

You can enchant all types of items in Minecraft and the quality of the armor does not really matter.

For example, you can enchant even leather tools or armors, but the more preferable thing is to enchant your diamond gears.

To start enchanting, you need an enchantment table, which you can construct out of four obsidian blocks, a bookshelf, and two diamonds.
