How to make sticks in Minecraft

Minecraft is a sandbox video game, which represents the real world. The only difference is that it is all about blocks.

The great thing about Minecraft is that you can break and craft. Just like in the real life.

In order to start your crafting you will need 2 things. You need to craft a crafting table and craft sticks, so you can start tool crafting and gather resources.

What are sticks in Minecraft used for?

Sticks are one of the most common and important objects found in Minecraft.

When crafting with sticks, there are many items that can be created including torches, fishing rods, arrows, ladders, and many more.

Sticks can also be used for making of tools we know like the sword, axe, pickaxe, shovel and hoe as well.

Overall, Minecraft is a game with endless possibilities and sticks can be used for anything you can come up with!

Where can I find sticks in Minecraft?

One of the first things players usually do, besides building a shelter to protect them from the monsters that wander around at night, is find a resource to create torches and fire with.

So how exactly does one find sticks in Minecraft?

The answer is rather simple: you just have to look for trees and trees are everywhere around you.

You can also find sticks in villages in chests inside houses, or if you are lucky you can find a villager who can trade 2 sticks for wheat or carrot

And finally sticks can also be found in dungeons, which by chance can be filled up with chests, that will contain sticks or even wood, which will grant you even more sticks to make more items in Minecraft.

How to craft sticks in Minecraft

Once you have found a tree by choice (it can Oak, Birch, Spruce, Dark Oak, Acacia, or Jungle depending on the biome you are) you will have to punch or cut it if you have handy tool like axe.

After you have cut down the tree and gathered the wood you will have to first turn the wood into planks.

You do that by opening your inventory or you can use your crafting table if you have already made one and place the block of wood in one of the crafting spaces and you should get wood plank.

1 block of wood equals to 4 planks so gather as much as needed to your needs.

Then once the wood is made into planks you use the planks and place them in the crafting space two planks oriented vertically or one at the top and the other at the bottom and you should be able to see the sticks icon appearing once you have done it.


Starting off with a crafting table can really help you begin your journey in Minecraft. Once you have it, you can always create an enormous amount of sticks, which players use for tools and most of the time for torches.
