How to Make Smooth Stone in Minecraft

Smooth Stone and Gold

Smooth stone is one of the many building blocks found in Minecraft.  

Unlike stone, smooth stone has limited applications outside of decorative purposes.  

If you wish to move a smooth stone block, you will need to use a pickaxe.

Making Smooth Stone in Survival Mode

Required Materials

To make smooth stone you need one ingredient: stone. 1 stone block produces 1 smooth stone block. 

It seems simple, but there’s a catch.  

Now to get stone, you will need to smelt cobblestone.  

Cobblestone is obtained by mining stone with a pickaxe.

With a furnace, you can smelt cobblestone back into stone and stone into smooth stone.  

When you’re looking for a fuel source, you have lots of options!

Wooden planks are probably the easiest to find but they only smelt 1.

Lava is pretty hard to come by early in the game, so wood or coal are the easiest choices. 

How to Craft Smooth Stone

  • Open the furnace

Walk up to your furnace and press the appropriate button to open the furnace menu. 

Before you do this make sure you have stone and fuel in your inventory.

  • Add fuel

When you open the furnace menu, you will see two boxes, one above the other.

Select your fuel source and place it in the bottom of the two boxes.  

  • Add stone

Select the amount of stone you want to turn into smooth stone.  

If you want to add blocks one by one for an exact amount, you can do this by pressing the corresponding button while holding a stack of stone over the top box in the furnace.

  • Collect the smooth stone

When you place the stone in the top box, you’ll see the flames turn red and the arrow begins to fill white. 

Once the arrow fills white, a block of smooth stone will appear in the right-hand box.  

If you are smelting multiple smooth stones, you can wait for all of the smooth stones to stack in the right-hand box if you want. 

Unlike the crafting menu, if you exit without taking the new item, the materials won’t drop to the ground. 

The furnace will continue to smelt whatever is in it until it runs out of fuel, materials, or space in the right-hand box.
