🎮 Minecraft: How to make a blast furnace

Making the blast furnace is not a complicated task; you will need to a furnace, three smooth stones and five iron ingots. But how do you get these items? In many cases you'll find these ingredients in more primitive or "wild" forms, but that's what we're here for. Let me show you exactly how to obtain each of these materials. Without further ado, let's get to the good stuff.

Crafting Table/ Workbench/ Crafting Table

Work table

It has different names depending on the region or who says it (or who you listen to), but it is an indispensable utility in Minecraft. The workbench is not necessary as an ingredient, but as a the means of creating a blast furnace. It's even needed to create a furnace before that, or most items in the game.

To make a work table, just you need four blocks of any type of wood. The four blocks are placed occupying the lower left corner (in case you are working on a work table). Clearly, this item is indispensable in the game, and very basic, so it also you can do it from your inventory.

What do you need the work table for?

The work table is used to carry out the termination of almost any element, it has 3 × 3 squares where you put the ingredients in a specific organization according to the element you want to make.

In your inventory you have the possibility to create some elements, it is like a 2×2 workbench (while the normal workbench is 3×3)

How do I get the wood?

To get the wooden blocks, before you will need to get logs (cutting down trees), and then you can transform them into wooden blocks; This process can be done in your inventory or on a workbench. Depending on the type of tree you cut, you will be able to obtain different types of wooden blocks, which will give specific colors to your work table.


regular oven

First of all let's see how to create a furnace, since it is the central ingredient for the blast furnace.

  1. All you need to look for is rock, the rock is obtained almost anywhere, you just open the ground a little and you will find it.
  2. When you get just 8 rock blocks you can go to the workbench and create your furnace. place the rocks occupying all squares except the middle one, and you will have an oven. To get the rock, you necessarily need a pickaxe, otherwise you will not collect it, you will only break it and it will take a long time.

Smooth stone


Once you have the oven, you can put the rock and a fuel (coals, wood, etc.) there and you will get stone. Then you repeat the process with the stone and you get smooth stone, and that easy you get another of the ingredients for the blast furnace.

Iron ingots

Smelting Iron Ingots

We already have two of the three ingredients, we only need what is perhaps the most difficult to obtain: iron ingots. Iron is obtained by mining, stinging like crazy to see what you find in the basement.

If you're determined to get iron, make sure you're prepared, and that means have at least one stone pickaxe. If you get to an iron ore and only have a wooden pickaxe, you won't be able to do anything. Other pickaxes that are used to chop iron mines are iron and diamond (they are more difficult to get than stone).

To get an iron ingot you must melt in the furnace the iron ores that you find.

What can I do with the blast furnace?

The blast furnace does not present great differences with respect to a normal furnace, but it does have an advantage that is worth many times. This Minecraft element allows us to melt or “cook” metals much faster, although yes, at the expense of more fuel.

Having a blast furnace can be totally worth it on many occasions, especially in fairly advanced instances of the game. when we have a lot of resources and we simply want to decrease the waiting time. But there may also be some conditions that force us to do the opposite, for example when we have almost no fuel and we want to melt very large amounts of minerals.

Anyway, if you need a blast furnace in Minecraft or not it will also depend on your game style and objective. But we cannot deny that if the materials are left over, it never hurts to have such a tool nearby for any occasion that requires it.
