How to Make an Axe in Minecraft

In total, you can craft a wide array of six axes in Minecraft (Wooden, Stone, Iron, Golden, Diamond, and Netherite) but the crafting process will always be the same, with the only difference lying in the types of planks and ores used.

With that said, you can make an axe in Minecraft by first getting two sticks and 3 blocks, which can be either planks or ores of any kind. Once you do that, you just need to open the crafting window and then arrange the items in a way that the ores/planks are placed over the sticks, thus simulating the visual of an actual axe. After placing the items, you just need to select your axe to finish the crafting process.

To recap, here’s how to craft an axe in Minecraft:

  • Get 2 Sticks and 3 Ores/Planks of any kind.
  • Open the Crafting window.
  • Place the 2 ores/planks on the upper row and one ore/plank in the first open space of the second row, which will be located directly below the first plank/ore.
  • Vertically place the two sticks on the middle row.
  • Get your axe.
