How to Make an Axe in Minecraft

The main goal while crafting an axe is to chop wooden items faster, though they can come in handy as a weapon too. A wooden axe will break a wood block twice as fast as by hand, a stone axe twice as fast again, and iron one another 30% or so faster.


Axes are a pretty handy weapon if your opponent has a shield. Attacking a shield with an axe has a chance to disable it for five seconds – opening its holder up to much more damage. If you attack while sprinting, you boost that chance significantly.


Required Materials for Axe


  1. 2 Sticks
  2. 3 Blocks of Axe Type (Wooden, Stone, Iron, Gold, Diamond)


Sticks


A stick in Minecraft is an important simple object that is used to build several other items in the game. They are used purely for crafting material since they cannot be placed in the world or utilized on their own. 4 sticks at a time will be produced by the following crafting process:

Wooden:


To obtain wooden planks you need logs or wood of any type from the following: Oak, Birch, Spruce, Dark Oak, Acacia, and Jungle. The fundamental method of acquiring a log is the same. First you locate a tree. Equip your axe and left-click on a block of the tree’s trunk and hold.

You can also do it with your hand, although the chopping speed will be far slower. A block of a log will drop. Pick it up. Head over to the crafting table 3x3 grid. Place the log in the center. This will cause 4 planks to be produced like the oak planks in the picture below:

Stone:


Cobblestone, the cracked product of mined stone, is one of the most common blocks in Minecraft. It's found either by mining ordinary stone or in dungeons that have been generated by the game, along with mossy cobblestone. It can also be found in strongholds, villages, and jungle temples. Cobblestone can be smelted in a furnace and be turned into stone. Cobblestone can be easily obtained by mining downwards through the top few layers of dirt and reaching stone.
