How To Make a Wooden Pickaxe in Minecraft

Making a wooden pickaxe in Minecraft is a great way to get started in the game. Even with the most basic tools, you can start digging, mining, and crafting your way around the world of blocks.

Firstly, let’s talk about what a pickaxe is used for. Pickaxes are tools that allow you to mine various materials in Minecraft. Whether mining for coal, iron, or diamonds, you will need a pickaxe to do it. So, let’s get started on how to make one!

Step 1: Gather Materials

The first thing you’re going to need to do is to gather materials. You will need three wooden planks and two sticks to make a wooden pickaxe. You can gather wooden planks by chopping down trees and sticks by breaking down leaves.
