How to make Smooth Stone in Minecraft

Smooth stone is a really easy block to get your hands on early in the game, and a lot of players use it to create foundations for their Minecraft bases and homes.

 

Because the block is so basic, with little to no texture or color variation, it’s a great base block for anyone wanting to make towers, cities, or anything of that sort.

 

Required Materials to Craft Smooth Stone:


The materials you will need in order to craft a torch are: 

  1. Furnace
  2. Cobblestone
  3. Any form of fuel (coal, charcoal, bucket of lava)

 

To make smooth stone, the first block you will need is a furnace. The first step to making a furnace is collecting 8 cobblestone from out in your minecraft world. 

 

Once you have collected all of your cobblestone for your project, add eight pieces per furnace you wish to create. If it’s a larger project, it’s suggested that you have multiple furnaces to expedite the process. 

 

Depending on how you plan to use the smooth stone, the amount of furnaces you may need differs. If you’re only making smooth stone for a blast furnace or two, you’re fine with one furnace. If you’re making a building out of it, however, it may be best to have a furnace for every stack of cobblestone that you have collected.

 

Once you have collected your materials, you can go on to create your furnaces. This guide explains more about how to make a furnace.

Now that you’ve created your furnace(s), you can proceed to making your smooth stone.

 

How to make a Smooth stone in Minecraft?


To make a Smooth stone in Minecraft, you need to double smelt your cobblestone in a furnace. Right-clicking the furnace will bring you to the furnace’s GUI as shown in below picture:

After opening the GUI, fill the top left-most space of the furnace with your cobblestone. This will allow you to smelt it into stone once you add your fuel.

In the available space under your block of choice, put your form of fuel. This can be coal, charcoal, a bucket of lava, or anything made of wood. This will fuel the furnace to smelt your cobblestone into stone.

Now you must wait for the arrow to fill completely. The arrow in the center of the furnace menu is an indicator to show how far along the furnace is in the smelting process.

This bar fills up individually for every block placed into the furnace. Once this bar is completely full, it will reset. Then your cobblestone will be fully converted to stone and will be ready to be removed from the furnace.

Once you have collected all of your new stone from your furnace(s), you must put it back in the furnace in the same slot that you put the cobblestone in before. Smelting the stone for a second time will convert it into smooth stone.


In the available space under your stone, put your form of fuel as shown:
