• Obtain 4x Sticks (0/4)
• Obtain 2x Timber (0/2)

Step 2

Craft a wooden shovel. You'll need it to gather ore. Wooden shovels can be crafted in your inventory or at a crafting table.

Step 7

So now you have some metal ore. Good job! Use the furnace to craft your first ingot. Furnaces operate like crafting tables except they require fuel and the fire can be lit and doused. Many different items can be burnt for fuel.

• Craft 1x Metal Ingot (0/1)
