It’s essential to have the right tool on hand in Minecraft if you’re looking to get anywhere in the game. Out of all the things you can craft, a sword, or more specifically, a wooden sword, will be one of the first things you’ll craft in-game.
In this article, we’re talking about how to craft a wooden sword in Minecraft.

If you’re out and about at night or run into a hostile mob, a sword, be it any level is the best weapon to defend you as it deals the most damage compared to any other tool made of the same material.
They’re relatively easy to craft as well. The recipe requires one stick and either of the following wood blocks:
- Oak Planks
- Spruce Planks
- Birch Planks
- Jungle Planks
- Acacia Planks
- Dark Oak Planks
- Crimson Planks
- Warped Planks
You can get planks from wooden blocks obtained from cutting down trees. All you need is two planks of the same type. Since the recipe remains the same regardless of what element your sword is made of, you can replace wood with cobblestone, Iron, Gold, Diamond or Netherite to make even better swords using the same recipe.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you will need a 3 x 3 crafting grid to make a sword; hence it’s essential to have a crafting table at the ready. Once you have everything ready, follow these steps.
Step 1: Walk up to your crafting table and right-click to interact.
Step 2: Place the stick and wood planks precisely, as shown below. Once crafted, move the sword back to your inventory.
Keep in mind that tools have limited durability and will break after some time. Also, swords and tools, in general, aren’t stackable either, meaning you can only have one per inventory slot.
