Minecraft – Smooth Stone Tutorial

Smooth stone has been present in Minecraft for quite a while now, but it wasn’t always featured as a building block for players to fiddle around with.

You can use the stone in some crafting recipes. Most players use it for its aesthetics, but there are some alternative, minimal uses in crafting recipes.

We are here with a quick guide to obtain smooth stone blocks and slabs.

To make the smooth stone block, you must do some smelting.

When you mine, you mostly encounter cobblestone.

To turn cobblestone into smooth stone, you have to smelt it.

The smelting process is quite simple but requires some setup.

First of all, you have to make a furnace, out of eight cobblestone blocks (just leave the middle block of the crafting table empty).

After that, clicking on the furnace will open up its menu. It has three boxes: On the higher box, there is the item you want to cook or smelt. On the lower box, there is the fuel. In the right box, there will be the resulting product (your smooth stone).

Place the cobblestone in the higher box, and use coal, sticks, or anything that is flammable as fuel.

After the process is finished, you will obtain a regular stone.

Now you can smelt the regular stone to turn it into a smooth stone.

After you pile up enough smooth stone, you can use it to create a better furnace or use them as a decorative block/building block.

Smooth stone can be used in various combinations with other items to produce amazingly-looking patterns or even images at an extremely low resolution.

This is one of the most interesting things in Minecraft – Your imagination is one of the very few limits to your creation.

We suggest looking at what other people built using Smooth Stone and other similar materials. A sneak peek can help you figure out what you want to do easier.
