Sandstone is a naturally occurring block that is commonly found in desert biomes in Minecraft.

Sandstone is an immensely useful tool for builders as it can provide much-needed block diversity for builds. Unlike sand, sandstone will not fall when placed without any block below it. Sandstone also has a different variant called Red Sandstone. The red variant can only be crafted with Red Sand.

Minecraft players can get Smooth Sandstone by smelting sandstone.

Smooth Sandstone has a smoother texture than the rough, cracking sandstone, while still having a sturdier structure than regular sand. Smooth Sandstone can be a useful tool in a builder's toolbar. Red Sandstone also has a smooth version.

Players will receive Cut Sandstone by combining four sandstones in a square in a crafting table/inventory.

Cut Sandstone is similar to Smooth Sandstone but provides a little more structure. Players are more likely to use Cut Sandstone for buildings due to its blocky nature. Red Sandstone also has a cut variant.

Players will get Chiseled Sandstone by crafting sandstone slabs and putting two on top of each other in a crafting table/inventory. This block has a Creeper face chiselled into it. It is naturally found in the Desert Temples.

Red Chiseled Sandstone looks slightly different.


#2 - Sandstone Wall

Sandstone can also be used to make Sandstone Walls.

Used for more than just decoration, one-block high sandstone walls cannot be jumped over like a regular sandstone. With that being said, creating a wall of regular sandstone does not look very good.
