Sticks in Minecraft

Sticks are an important basic item in Minecraft that you’re going to use to craft many other more complicated items. There are several ways you can craft a stick. All you need is any one of the following items.

  • 2 x Oak Planks
  • 2 x Sprice Planks
  • 2 x Birch Planks
  • 2 x Jungle Planks
  • 2 x Acacia Planks
  • 2 x Dark Oak Planks
  • 2 x Crimson Planks
  • 2 x Warped Planks
  • 2 x Bamboo

The wood planks can be obtained by cutting down trees and crafting logs into planks. Bamboo can be found in the jungle biome or bamboo jungles spread across biomes. 

Once you have the required materials, follow these steps to make a stick. Keep in mind that since you need a 3 x 3 crafting grid to make a stick, it’s essential to make a crafting table beforehand. 

Step 1: Walk up to your crafting table and open it by clicking the right mouse button.

Sticks have a stack size of 64, meaning you can keep up to 64 sticks in one inventory block. As you progress through the game, you’ll be using sticks to create tools and weapons such as the pickaxe, hoe, axe, sword and bow, among other items.
