Not just smooth stone, we will also cover some recipes using them to make your Minecraft journey interesting. Stay tuned.
Smooth stone is not just for decoration. It’s crucial for making a few other things like a blast furnace, smooth stone slab, etc.
You can also have it in your inventory by breaking another smooth stone with a pickaxe. Besides, one can find it in a mason’s chest within a village.
Additionally, it grows naturally in a few houses in some biomes like plains, savanna, etc.
But you shouldn’t search it anywhere since it’s pretty simple to craft.
How to Make Smooth Stone in Minecraft
You’ll need a few things to get started:
- Fuel (coal, logs, planks, etc.)
Notably, cobblestone as an ingredient will involve one additional step in converting it first into a stone.
But since stones generally drop as cobblestone when mined with a pickaxe unless you’re using a silk enchanted pickaxe, this is the route most beginners take.
So, mine some stones to get cobblestones and then put them into the furnace (built from eight blocks of cobblestone) with fuel to get the stones back.
Afterward, put stones in the furnace again to make smooth stones.
And there you have it. Now let’s see some recipes involving smooth stones.
Smooth Stone Slab
A smooth stone slab is precisely half of a smooth stone block. You can craft it using a stonecutter (made from one piece of iron ingot and three stones) or the crafting table.
The primary use of a smooth stone slab is to make an armor stand. Smooth stone slab mined with pickaxe drops itself, which you can put in your inventory.
You can build this with five iron ingots, one regular furnace, and three smooth stones.
A blast furnace is twice as fast as a standard furnace. You can mine this with a pickaxe to store it.
Smooth stone is made from smelting regular stone. However, that isn’t easy to get as it drops as cobblestone without the silk enchanted pickaxe.
So the most effortless way to make smooth stones is to collect stones as cobblestones and use the furnace twice.
PS: Singleplayer Minecraft gets lonely after some time, but you won’t feel it if you can tame a fox.
