How To Make a Stonecutter In Minecraft: Quick Crafting Recipe

Are you a builder like me in Monecraft?
If yes, then you need to make a stonecutter to build what you want.

A stonecutter is a block in Minecraft which allows you to extract different variations and designs from a single block. You can make slabs, fences, stairs, etc by using it.
This same work can be done with crafting but a stonecutter is more helpful because it can cut the blocks in bulk and in less time.
So I think you are now ready to start making the stonecutter.
A stonecutter in Minecraft is crafted by placing iron ingot in the middle cell of the middle column and stones in the last column in the crafting table.

Things you need to make a stonecutter:
  • 3x Stone
  • 1x Iron Ingot

How To Get The Stones?

The first thing that you need to make the stonecutter is stone. Stone is a common resource and it can be collected easily by using these two ways.
#1 Stone From Cobblestone:

  1. Mine some cobblestone inside the ground by using any pickaxe
  2. Make a crafting table by placing 4 wooden planks in a 2*2 grid of inventory crafting table
  3. Open the crafting table { 3*3 grid }, and place cobblestone in all cells except the middle cell. In this way, you will have a furnace
  4. Place the furnace somewhere and open it by using the pointer
  5. Place cobblestone in the first input cell and fuel {coal & charcoal} in the second cell
  6. After some time the stone will be prepared
#2 Stone by fortune:
This is only for someone who has a fortune pickaxe { Fortune 1, Fortune 2, Fortune 3 }. Using this method, you have to mine stone inside the ground by using a fortune pickaxe.
If you mine the stone with a fortune pickaxe then you will get stone but mining stone with a normal pickaxe will result in cobblestone. 

How To Get Iron Ingots?

After getting stone, you need iron ingots to make the cutter.
Iron is a rare resource that is found if you mine inside the ground or as a treasure.
Caves and treasure chests are the best places to look for iron.
If you get iron ingots as treasure then you can use that to make the cutter, but if you mine the iron ore then you have to do some more basic steps:
minecraft iron ingots
  1. Open the furnace 
  2. Place iron ore in the first input cell, and then fuel in the second input cell
  3. Wait for some time and collect the ingots
Now, if you have all the items then you are good to go:
You can make a stone cutter by following these steps:

  1. Open your crafting table because you can only craft a stonecutter in 3*3 grid
  2. Place 3 stone blocks in the middle column of the 3*3 grid
  3. Place 1 iron ingot in the middle cell of the top column as shown in image
  4. Collect the cutter and enjoy doing builds
