How to Make a Fence in Minecraft
Crafting fences is one of the easiest tasks you’ll perform in Minecraft. Sure, you can also run to the closest village and chop some to take home, but what’s the fun in that?
Step 1: Find some wood
Head out to the closest trees and start chopping them down. You need enough to make four blocks of wood planks and two sticks per fence. Remember, the fence type will depend on which trees you harvest.
Step 2: Prepare your resources
Now that you have your resources, go to your crafting table and start setting it up. You need two planks in the bottom of the left and right columns, with the sticks between them.
Step 3: Craft your fences
You have a choice of crafting each set of fences once, a few times, or all at once. Ensure that you press the appropriate button, as the final selection will use all available resources for the max amount.
Setting your de-Fences
Not only do fences look fantastic around your property, but they will keep your animals and crops in one place. Play around with different ideas, and don’t forget you can also make Nether fences for that extra touch.
