Enchanting your things is one of the quickest ways to increase strength, loot quicker in Minecraft, but you need an Enchanting Table to do that. It is always one of the key goals of players to get the required items to create an Enchanting Table to attain the added benefits that come alongside.

The table can enchant all tools, armour and gear except ‌shears, flint and steel, shield, lead, horse armour, and a few other items.

Where to find an Enchanting Table in Creative Mode?

You will find the enchantment table already in your inventory if you are playing in Creative mode. It may be classified under Miscellaneous, Decorations or Objects, depending on the version of the game you are playing.

Required Items to make an Enchanting Table

To make an Enchanting Table in Minecraft, you need:

  1. 2 diamonds
  2. 4 blocks of Obsidian
  3. 1 book


Diamonds are one of the rarest ores in Minecraft most commonly found at y-coordinates 10 and 11, preferably on layers 5-12. They can only be mined with an iron pickaxe or higher, and, while there are only two in the recipe itself, you would need to find at least five to make an enchanting table.

Obsidian is a dark black block that only emerges as lava is struck by rushing water. By making buckets, you can make this happen yourself. With a bucket, scoop up the lava and dump it into a four-block pit. Pour the water such that it flows down into the lava from a certain height. Doing this will result in the lava turning into obsidian. Mine four obsidian blocks as soon as you create your diamond pickaxe, which requires 3 diamonds and two sticks to make.


A book is the last item required before we can begin the crafting process. One way to get a book is by crafting it. As discussed in how to make a map guide, three sugar canes have to be placed in a row to craft paper, while the lather is most commonly given by the cow as loot. Once you have the leather and papers, craft a book using this recipe:

An easier method, however, could be breaking down bookshelves in villages.
