How to Make Signs in Minecraft

The main objective of signs and banners in Minecraft is for the players to leave messages for each other or the rules for an adventure map. It is also possible to use banners and signs as ornamental items used to decorate your home or warn players about dangerous areas.

Signs in Minecraft enable you to type text in the sign and when finished, everyone else can see what you wrote. This crafting process will create 3 signs at a time.

Required Materials for Sign

- 6 wooden planks

- 1 stick

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 the log will drop. Pick it up. Head over to the crafting table 3x3 grid. Place the log in the centre. This will cause 4 planks to be produced like the oak planks in the picture below:
