Minecraft’s wide assortment of blocks helps players get creative when building stone structures, with Smooth Stone being one of the most popular. Players can use Smooth Stone in Minecraft to create some very impressive designs, but first they’ll need to gather enough of it throughout the game.

The good news is, Smooth Stone in Minecraft doesn’t take too long to produce. Here’s how to get Smooth Stone in Minecraft and how to use it to craft other items like Stone Slabs and Stone Bricks.

How to make a Furnace in Minecraft

In order to make Smooth Stone in Minecraft, you will need first need to gather Cobblestone. This will be for constructing a Furnace. We recommend getting as much Cobblestone as you can, because not only will you need it for the Furnace, you’ll need it as an ingredient in crafting Smooth Stone itself.

While you are harvesting Cobblestone, be sure to check around for Coal too. This will be the material best suited for smelting things together in the Furnace. Once you are done gathering materials, follow the below image which is the recipe for making a Furnace.

Once you have completed this task, then we are ready to move on making the Smooth Stone.


Turning Cobblestone into Smooth Stone

Now that you have the three materials required to make Smooth Stone, the process is actually quite easy. You are going to want to put the Coal you have collected into the bottom portion of the Furnace, as this is going to be the fuel.

Then, you will need to take all of the Cobblestone you have collected and place it at the top half of the Furnace. After a while, the Coal will melt the Cobblestone into Stone. Then it’s onto the final step in making Smooth Stone in Minecraft.

Once all of the Cobblestone is burned and you have a nice stack of Stone, you are going to want to place all of the Stone back into the Furnace and melt it again. Once this has been completed you will have the finished product of Smooth Stone.

This block is pretty versatile and can be used within lots of Minecraft building projects, but there are other variants of Smooth Stone you can create.

How to make Smooth Stone Slab

Smooth Stone Slabs are essentially cut-down versions of full Smooth Stone blocks within Minecraft. They are best used for roofing and smaller-scaled locations. To make Smooth Stone Slabs, you’ll just need some Smooth Stone.

First, open up the crafting menu, and then place a row of Smooth Stone horizontally across all three squares within it. Placing one Smooth Stone block within each square will produce six Smooth Stone Slabs.

How to make Stone Bricks

While there is not a Smooth Stone Block variant, there are also regular Stone Bricks that work well alongside Smooth Stone. The process of making these blocks is going to follow the same procedure as if you were making Smooth Stone, but instead of burning the Stone a second time, you simply stop there.


Once you have your Stone Blocks, you will then need to place them in a square pattern (see below) to produce the Stone Bricks.

While these aren’t considered as desirable as Smooth Stone blocks, they essentially do the same job.
