How to Build Stairs in Minecraft?
Things you need to build stairs:
- Wooden Planks
- Crafting Table
To make the stairs, open your crafting table. In the 3×3 crafting grid there, place the wooden planks in the following order: 1 plank in the first row, 2 planks in the second row, and 3 planks in the third row, in descending order.
Wood is one of the primary resources you will find in Minecraft. Go to a tree and hold down the left mouse button (LMB) while pointing at the wood until it falls. If you move away from the tree or point at it, you have to start over.
Convert Wood into Planks
In your inventory, pick up the wooden blocks with LMB and place them in the 2×2 crafting grid. Each wooden block will give you three planks. You can divide the number of planks into two equal parts by right-clicking on them. This will help you organize and ration your resources.
Build a Crafting Table
The crafting table can be used to craft a number of tools. You can create a crafting table by placing four planks in a crafting grid. Once created, you can equip it and place it anywhere on the map.
To build the stairs, place the wooden planks in the 3×3 crafting grid in the following order. This is how you can create a basic staircase. Even if you’re a fan of castles and towers, basic stairs won’t do. You need a spiral staircase.
How to Build Spiral Staircase?
To build a spiral staircase, you will need blocks and slabs. First, you need to create a column with blocks of your choice. The height of the stairs depends on how many blocks you stack on top of each other. Now start placing the slabs around the column, raising each one one by one, clockwise or counterclockwise. And there you have it. A spiral staircase for your castle or tower. You can also use different materials like stone bricks, cobblestones, mud bricks, etc.
