How to Make a Stonecutter in Minecraft

Did you know that Minecraft evolved so much that now you can turn your stone into decorative materials in a realistic way?

The stonecutter is one of the most effective items in Minecraft, which helps us to craft faster, with more precision and efficiency.

In this article, we will explain how to make a stonecutter in Minecraft and use it for your next project.

What is a stonecutter in Minecraft

The stonecutter is a building block, used to cut stone and copper items more precisely, and in a more realistic way. Any player can put stone-related and copper-related blocks, and choose between the recipes faster.

It’s an item that serves the purpose of crafting through possible recipes.

But the difference between a stonecutter and a crafting table is that it requires fewer items to craft. The crafting table will require following a bigger recipe, which requires more items, while the stonecutter will need only 1 block from the crafting recipe.

Aside from using it for crafting purposes, you can use the stonecutter on a villager, so he can get the mason job.

Where can I find a stonecutter in Minecraft

Stonecutters can only be found in villages as job blocks. If there is no Mason villager, you will need to make a stonecutter, by following an easy-to-do recipe.

You cannot find stonecutters in chests, ruined nether portals, or underwater temples.

However, the items for making a stonecutter are very easy to get, and we will explain to you how to get them.

What materials do I need to make stonecutter in Minecraft

To make a stonecutter in Minecraft you will need to have 3 stones and 1 iron ingot.

The iron ingot can be obtained with a stone pickaxe by searching in the mines. Iron is usually found in the form of ore in the mines, and does not require digging deep. You will need to have a furnace and coal, or any other burning material, so the iron ore can be melted into an iron ingot.

Stone can be acquired in 2 different ways. If you have a silk touch enchanted pickaxe, you can directly take the stone.

But if the pickaxe is not enchanted, you will need to gather cobblestone and put it in the furnace. After smelting it, the cobblestone will turn into a stone block.

Once you have acquired all the items for a stonecutter, you will need to use a crafting table.

The stonecutter recipe will require you to put an iron ingot in the middle of the 2nd row, and the 3 stones under the middle row.

If you have followed the recipe, you should be receiving a stonecutter, which can be used by right-clicking on it.

Can I stack stonecutters in Minecraft

You can stack up to 64 stonecutters in Minecraft per slot. The number cannot be changed from the settings, except if you are using a mod or a plugin for manipulating the numbers.
