PS on this wiki, I use the 'Recipe' and 'As a crafting ingredient' in a crafting table.
To open a crafting table grid, right click on it.
Note: N means Nothing and WP means Wood Planks
Inventory: Top Row: WP, WP. Bottom Row: WP,WP
It is impossible to make your first crafting table in a crafting table, since you need to make one to open its menu.
Pocket & Pi EditionEdit
In the Pocket and Pi Editions, crafting uses the MATTIS system, and all you have to do is pick your desired block and push the ingredients tab. Also, under the ingredients tab is a description, and in some glitches the description is unavailiable.
