Maybe it would be good for you to know how to make a lectern in Minecraft. If you are a regular player of the mining and open world game, you might want a stand for several reasons, from reading more comfortably, to wanting to have a librarian villager, without overlooking the aesthetic extra that gives such a structure to any room. Well, today I am going to explain in detail everything you need to create a lectern. If you have experience with Minecraft, go directly to the parts that interest you. But if you’re a beginner in the game, no problem. With this guide even my grandmother could craft a music stand.
Minecraft has stolen the world of video games and does not want to return it. The game counts its monthly active users by hundreds of millions for several years. And there have been several factors that have led to this enormous success: the freedom to create practically anything; the constant updates, the downloadable DLC and all the attention of the developers to the community; and luck, mainly luck to be liked by the right people and to create an infinite amount of the game on platforms of mass use.
But we are not here to analyze Minecraft as a social phenomenon, but for something much simpler. Therefore, let’s see quickly and in detail how to make a lectern.
How do I make a music stand in Minecraft?
You can craft a music stand with the following ingredients: a bookcase and four wooden slabs. But let’s take a closer look at each ingredient and see how to get it from scratch.
the work table
The work table is not an ingredient of anything in itself, but at the same time it is. This item is necessary to make the vast majority of items What can be done in the game? It should always be the first product we make, because it will allow us to do everything else.
Imagine that you start the game, what is the first thing you do? Well, for at least most people, the answer is: go chop down trees. Well, not bad, that’s what I wanted you to tell me, because it’s the first step to obtain the wooden slabs.
When you punch down a tree, you’re going to get trunks, which is the wildest form of wood. When you have the logs, open your inventory (done by pressing “E”), and place a log in the crafting box. This will give you as a product 4 wooden blockswhich is very good for you, because it is just enough to make the artboard.
Now place the four wooden blocks all over the crafting boxand it will give you as a product a work table. The workbench is very similar to the crafting section of your inventory, only it has more capacity. In other words, on the work table you can craft larger and more elaborate items.
Based on everything you already know with the workbench, making a slab of wood is a piece of cake. Only you will need three blocks of wood (the same ones you used to make the work table). Place the 3 wooden blocks on a horizontal line in the crafting box on the workbench. You will get as a result 6 wooden tilesmore than enough for our objective.
This is where the game gets a bit challenging, the library recipe consists of 6 wooden blocks and 3 books.
The 6 wooden blocks are the same ones used to make the workbench or the wooden slabs. Therefore, I will not explain that part.
How to make books in Minecraft?
The books are the part that may have left you thinking, and it is true that you will need some elements that are not so easy to obtain.
Starting, we will need sugar cane, when you have 3 sugar canesput them in line horizontally on the artboard. You will get as a result 3 sheets of paper. The sheets of paper are the first material to create a book.
Keep in mind that sugarcane is the only way in Minecraft to get paper. For this time there are no alternatives
The leather It is the second material needed to create a book, you can obtain it by sacrificing some animals. The animals that give leather in Minecraft are: horse, donkey, cow and llama. There is an alternative that is to get 4 rabbit skins, and craft them into leather. Choose the route that best suits you.
once you have sheets of paper and leather, you are ready to make a book. Only place three sheets of paper and a piece of leather on the work table. The order or organization is completely unimportant, you can put the recipe however it is and it will turn out well.
Well then, we already have the book and we are ready to make our beloved bookstore. now you just need place the 3 books in the center row. AND 6 wooden blocks in the remaining squares, just as shown in the picture. In this case, the organization is of the utmost importance, if you place the ingredients in any other way you will not get the desired result.
How do you make the lectern in Minecraft?
But hey, we haven’t come this far to make a bookstore, remember? Our goal is the lectern, and now we will see how to organize the elements to do it. If you have followed the steps up to here you must have in your inventory -at least- a bookcase and 6 wooden slabs.
Go to the workbench and place the bookcase and 4 wooden slabs in a T shapejust as we show you in the image.
About the types of wood in Minecraft
The type of wood depends on the type of tree you are cutting, and does not make any drastic difference to the final product. However, it does have an effect on the color of the wood. So you already know, if you want easels or other items with unique looks, you should try using other types of wood.
And that’s all, I hope I’ve been helpful. Let me know in the comments any questions you have.
