A stonecutter is a utility block that offers players a more-efficient method of crafting stone blocks.


A stonecutter can spawn within certain buildings in Villages if they generated after the release of 1.14.


The stonecutter lets the player put stone-related Blocks into its interface. This will then give you items to craft relating to the stone. However, it differs from the Crafting Table with being able to create 1 Stair out of 1 block making it better than the Crafting Table. You can also create 2 Slabs from 1 Block. If a village has a stonecutter but no mason, any nearby Villager without a profession has a chance to become a stone mason.



The stonecutter was originally exclusive to Minecraft: Pocket Edition. It was used to make stone-related blocks, such as Bricks and Stone Bricks. The stonecutter is similar to the crafting table, but it can only be used for stone-related crafting. It was originally implemented to avoid over-coding of the Crafting Table. It has a similar texture to a Furnace, but with a hammer and a gear on one of its sides, as well as a large gear on the top.

As of update 0.13.0, all items could be crafted with the crafting table. As a result, the stonecutter was made obsolete, and could no longer be obtained in survival mode (unless an existing one is mined using the Silk Touchenchantment). The block itself was still available in Creative Mode, but could only be used for decoration.

The newer version of the stonecutter was added as part of Snapshot 18w44a, a precursor to update 1.14. This version of the stonecutter had no functionality and spawned in newly-generated villages, but as of snapshot 19w04b, it can now be used to craft stone-related items. It can be crafted with 3 stone blocks and an iron ingot. 


  • This block was originally exclusive in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, but was added and revamped to the Minecraft: Java Edition in update 1.14.
  • Stonecutters are also present in the Nintendo 3DS version of Minecraft, but only as a decorative block and can only be obtained in the Creative inventory.
  • The saw of the stonecutter appears to be moving, despite it having no source of power in crafting.

One recipe that pretty much everyone memorises from the first time they play Minecraft is how to make a crafting table. It's four planks arranged in a square, of course. You'll also find crafting tables occasionally in the wild - in village libraries, witch huts and igloos. Who knows what those witches are crafting?

A crafting table allows the player to craft a variety of blocks and items.

Natural generation[edit]

Crafting tables naturally generate in witch huts and the basement of igloos. Crafting tables generate in woolen tents outside pillager outposts and in some small village houses.


Crafting tables can be mined with or without any tool, but axes are the quickest.




Pressing use on a crafting table opens the 3×3 crafting grid that allows the player to craft many more items than are available with the crafting grid in the inventory, which is only 2×2.

The recipe book is available to the left of the crafting grid (collapsed by default in Java Edition, expanded by default in Bedrock Edition), which stores crafting recipes for reference and one-click crafting.


Crafting tables can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per crafting table.

  • The application icon for Java Edition is a crafting table, since 1.6.1.
    • 1.6.2 had a strange icon like RubyDung versions.
    • Before that, the icon was the Java icon.
    • After 1.6.2, the icon is changed again.
  • The original inventory screen before January 29, 2010 was the crafting table interface, meaning there was no way of putting on armor yet, and the player could not be seen.
  • None of the tools you see on the side of the table are real tools in-game.

Knowing how to build a crafting table in Minecraft is a helpful trick to make more complex items. To build a crafting table and storage chest in Minecraft, you need wooden planks. Follow these steps to use wood blocks to produce wooden planks:

  1. Press E to display the Inventory screen.

  2. Click a square containing wood blocks to pick them up, and then click an empty square in the crafting grid to place them there.

    Four wooden planks appear next to the grid.

  3. Click the square that contains the planks.

    One wood block disappears, but four wooden planks appear on the mouse cursor!

  4. Click the square that contains the planks a few more times to pick up all the planks you can, or Shift-click to send all planks directly to the inventory.

You can use these planks as building blocks or to build a crafting table and chest.

Your avatar’s crafting grid is a 2-by-2 square; however, many items you need in order to survive require a 3-by-3 grid to craft. To unlock this larger grid, you build a crafting table. Follow these steps to build a crafting table, or workbench:

  1. Press E to open the Inventory screen.

  2. Click a square containing your planks, and then right-click each square in the crafting grid to distribute four planks into the squares.

    A crafting table appears on the right, as shown.

  3. Click the crafting table to pick it up, and then click a square in the bottom row of the inventory to place the table there.

    You can access items outside the Inventory screen only if they’re on the bottom row. This row is always displayed at the bottom of the game screen.

  4. Press E or Esc to close the inventory.

  5. Use the 1–9 keys or the scroll wheel to select the crafting table.

    A thick, white outline appears around the crafting table.

    You can use either the number keys or the scroll wheel to select items from the bottom row of the inventory. Place the most useful items in the slots you can quickly access.

  6. Right-click a nearby surface to place the crafting table there.

Right-click the crafting table to view a screen similar to the inventory, with an expanded crafting grid. You use this grid for all crafting recipes in the game, including the chest.

Since arriving on Windows Phone last year, Minecraft: Pocket Edition opened up a new world of exploration and creativity for more people.

For the uninitiated, the world of Minecraft can be both expansive and daunting. But if you know how to master the game or at least know the essentials, you’ll be building an entire kingdom in no time.

Here’s our guide to starting out in Minecraft: Pocket Edition.

1. A game of two halves

Minecraft: Pocket Edition has two methods of play.

Creative mode is where you can jump straight into a world, fully equipped with everything you’d possibly need to start creating.

Want to build a small wooden hut? Just use the limitless wooden planks in your inventory without the need to chop down trees.

Want something a bit more grand? Use the infinite number of glass blocks, stone bricks and glowstones and head to the seas for your underwater palace.

In Survival mode you start with empty pockets and you must earn your much-needed possessions.

Need wood, stone, wool, or gold? You’ll need to find it the old-fashioned way–by collecting it.

Beware, it’s not called Survival mode for nothing. There are plenty of nasties out there looking to get you. Stay clear of the spiders, endermen, creepers and zombies. If they get you, you’ll lose everything you’ve collected, and you will have to harvest/farm/mine them again.

For the rest of the guide, we’ll assume you’re playing in survival mode as you don’t really need any help in the creative mode.

2. Seize (or should that be size) control

Depending on the Lumia you have, you may want to change the size of the D-Pad. For instance, the Lumia 1520‘s six-inch display might provide a D-Pad big enough for most people, but the Lumia 532‘s four-inch screen may require you adjust the controls a bit.

Thankfully, game options include the ability to increase the size of the D-Pad from small to huge. Play around with the slider-bar until you find the perfect one for you.

Small D-Pad

Large D-Pad

3. When darkness comes, hide!

One of the first essential tasks is to build yourself a home. That may not be so easy with an empty inventory.

Minecraft features a day and night cycle, which means that after 10 minutes, the sun will set, making way for night-time. You don’t want to be out at night: That’s when all the hostiles come out to feed.

For your first night, find a hill and dig a shallow hole into the side of it by punching the dirt (tap and hold). A basic one-time safe house needs to be no bigger than two blocks tall, one block wide, and two blocks deep.

Slide yourself inside and barricade the bottom of the entrance using a dirt or sand block, leaving only a single block free for you to see out of that no angry mob can enter.

The reason you’ll need to see outside is so you’ll know when the sun rises, making it safe for you to spend another day exploring–in about seven minutes.

4. Gather lots of resources

At the start of a new day, it’s time to leave the safety of your temporary shelter and go out hunting or gathering.

Pretty much everything you come across on Minecraft can be collected in one way or another. But if you’re just starting out, you’ll need to use your fists.

Want to gather wood? Start punching that tree until all that’s left is a pile of logs on the floor and you have splinters in your knuckles. The same technique can be applied to the ground to gather dirt, sand or clay.

What you do with those materials is up to you, but for your second day in Minecraft, we suggest you upgrade that hole you spent the first night in, as night will soon arrive again.

5. Craft

Take a look through your inventory by hitting the ellipsis icon at the bottom. There, you can move to the crafting section where you can turn those oak logs into oak planks.

Once you start making planks of wood, your creativity options begin to expand. For example, planks of wood can be turned into sticks and you’re going to need plenty of those later. Planks of wood can also be used to…

6. Create a crafting table

You’ll need one of these.

Go back to your newly constructed dirt/wood/sand house, create a crafting table and position it out of the way.

The crafting table is used for making advanced items out of the basic materials that you find. Items that will help you progress at a quicker pace would be the wooden sword, wooden axe, wooden shovel and wooden pickaxe.

Why? These items help you fight foes, chop trees, and dig dirt/sand at faster speeds. Plus, by using a pickaxe when mining stone, you’ll now be able to collect cobblestone–a vital ingredient for creating stone pickaxes, furnaces, and many other items.

7. Knock, Knock!

Who’s there?

Who knows? Who cares? The fact you’ve got a door in the first place is a wonderful thing.

When you’re inside and sifting through the inventory at your crafting table trying to decide what to make next, the last thing you want is a bad guy sneaking up behind you and blowing you and your house to smithereens.

It’s a simple thing, but create a door (out of six planks of wood) to block the entrance rather than using valuable building blocks. Plus, you can open and close it by tapping it.

8. Create fire!

To create fire you’ll need coal and plenty of it.

Coal can be found using a pickaxe when you mine coal ore blocks. While they’re quite easy to find, they’re much less common than the plentiful dirt, grass and sand.

Try digging away at the dirt on the side of a mountain and keep on the lookout for a grey block with large black specks. That’ll be coal ore.

The nice thing about finding one block of coal ore is that there are usually several blocks around it. Keep on digging to collect as much as possible. When you destroy a coal ore block it drops coal.

By combining one stick and one coal you create … four torches!

Torches = no more fumbling around in the dark.

9. Know your enemy

As previously discussed, night-time is when all the frightful creatures come out looking for you, but you’ll also see some in the daytime, too.

At dawn, you’ll see the remaining zombies and skeletons burning under the scalding sunshine, which means you just need to be out of arm’s reach before they turn to dust.

Spiders will remain but they won’t chase you should it be light enough–they only attack when it’s dark.

Takeaway lesson: Don’t attack if you don’t need to; you might not win.

10. Learn the lay of the land

So, you’ve created your castle, created a sheep farm (yes, you can do that, too) and maxed out your inventory. What’s next?

The time has come to explore farther afield. However, you may not want to completely abandon your first home.

Navigating your way around Minecraft is difficult, with mountains, oceans, and forests around every corner. Did you turn left or right past that very nondescript-looking tree?

Create a “breadcrumbs trail” so you can find your way back again. These can consist of torches, planks of wood, even carvings in the dirt. Use anything available.

Now that you know the basics of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, create your world today.

Minecraft Crafting Table Recipe

Item Stacks determine Output instead of Crafting Grid

If the crafting bench determines the output item by just counting the number and type of input items, you would not need a crafting grid. For example, you put in 4 planks and 2 sticks and it will know that you want a fence. You could replace the grid with a few item slots and the bench could determine the output automatically. It just outputs the item that uses all the item types and the largest number in those stacks. This would simplify crafting a lot and encourage experimenting over Google-ing the recipe.

Redstone Problem Solving

If the block determines its output automatically, it follows that it could be automatable. When triggered by redstone it could consume one lot of input items and spit out its determined output. Hoppers could fill the input slots and suck items from the output.

When trying to create a redstone circuit to automate crafting, players will quickly realize the limitations of the comparator; they only update in intervals of n(maybe 23) items and cannot differentiate between different stacks of items. For example, ensuring the block crafts fences instead of gates would require a very different circuit to crafting trapdoors. They may end up using filter hoppers, redstone clocks, comparators, even binary counters. 


  • It simplifies manual crafting for beginners.
  • Provides a lot of redstone puzzles for experienced players.


There are some problems however. This system is only applicable to items that are unique when its recipe is converted to shapeless stacks. For example, cobblestone stairs and fences, and a pickaxe and axe require the same number and types of items. The crafting bench cannot determine the output automatically. Therefore I recommend this system only be used for a subset of blocks that avoids duplicate shapeless recipes. It could also be used for purposes other than crafting like alloy smelting, chemistry, etc. For compressing stacks like redstone, coal or wheat into blocks it may only need 1 slot.

Another problem is that crafting benches let the player preview the item in the output slot. In a furnace, hoppers would suck from the output slot automatically as soon as an item enters it. I suggest that the output slot have a ghostly preview of the item that becomes the normal image when it actually exists. Alternatively, the first item just consumes the input stacks but does not change the image in the output. 

The Assembler

The Assembler consumes items from two input slots and outputs an item when either the output slot is clicked by the player, or the block is triggered by redstone.

This block is used to craft simple dynamic components. Here is a short list:

chest, trapped chest, dropper, hopper, tnt, lever, pressure plate, button, redstone lamp, note block, rail, gates, trapdoors, redstone torch...

Now, imagine you wanted to craft a chest. You put in 1 plank and it offers you a button. You need to wait for at least 8 planks before you can craft a chest, or you might get 7 buttons and no one wants that. You probably want a filter hopper because if the wrong item enters that second slot, you are crafting nothing. You could cascade 2 assemblers so you can automatically craft hoppers. For that you will need 5 iron ingots and 1 chest. You have to prevent your redstone clock from triggering before 5 ingots because otherwise you are getting iron pressure plates and, again, no one wants that. In this case a comparator doesn't help because its output is 1 at 1 item updates to 2 for 10 items. You will have to count your items in a different way.

Each recipe introduces a different redstone puzzle. A different redstone circuit may be used to solve each of them. You can still use it manually. So it both simplifies recipes for new players and encourages problem solving for experienced players.

I think it should be crafted with a Crafting Bench, 2 Pistons, 2 Comparators and a Stonecutter.
