The world of Minecraft is full of possibilities at the service of your imagination. But before building your pixel empire, you have to learn the basics first. Learn how to build one of the game’s most useful elements: the fence.
The importance of the fence
Building a fence allows players to set aside an area to keep mobs inside (with animals, for example) or to protect a space from aggressive mobs. Fences prevent other players and mobs from entering your space.
How to make a wooden fence?
Let’s now teach you how to easily build a wooden fence. You will need six wooden planks of the same type to make the fence. For the recipe to work, do not mix different types of wood.
Build six wooden boards
Place a block of wood on the crafting grid and get four planks. Repeat the process to get more boards of the same wood. Four of the boards will be used for the fence and another two will be turned into sticks.
Create two sticks from the same wood
Place two boards on the crafting grid, one in the center and one at the bottom. Through this process, you get four sticks.
Join the boards and sticks to create the fence
Now that you have the necessary boards and sticks, you just have to position the objects correctly. On the grid, place a stick in the center, a plank on your left side, and one on your right. Repeat this process on the bottom row.
This recipe creates three fence pieces.
