Minecraft grindstone: what it’s for and how to make it

Minecraft offers a wide variety of adventures, and as Mojang has released more and more updates, the possibilities have multiplied even further. This time we’ll tell you all about the whetstone (or whetstone)so you can build it and understand what it’s used for in the game.

What is the grindstone for in Minecraft?

The main function of the whetstone in the game is to repair and disenchant weapons, armor and other items such as enchantment books. When you disenchant a previously enchanted item, you gain the experience accumulated by that item. However, the whetstone is not suitable for removing curses.

Recipe to craft a whetstone in Minecraft

To make a whetstone, you need three important materials: Two sticks, a stone slab and two slabs from any wood. Here’s how to get them all, as well as the final recipe and the order in which to place each material.

The first step is obtaining wood. You should already know how to get it from trees (by hitting them with your fists or an ax to go faster), but in case you can’t, in this post we remind you the most effective method, which focuses on building a house. When you have them, place them on the crafting table and you get wooden panels.

Once in your possession you can keep a few of them and with two others by placing them vertically on top of each other on the crafting table you will get sticks.

After all we still need the stone slab. Once you have the base material (again, this is easy to do by placing a pickaxe on a random rock surface), place three of the rocks horizontally on the crafting table to get the desired material.
