Crafting an anvil in Minecraft is a fairly straightforward process. Here's what you'll need:


  • Crafting Table: This is the basic crafting station where you'll combine your materials to create the anvil.
  • 31 Iron Ingots: You can obtain iron ingots by smelting iron ore in a furnace. Iron ore is a common resource found underground throughout the Minecraft world.

Crafting Recipe:

  1. Open your crafting menu. You'll see a 3x3 grid for placing your crafting ingredients.

  2. Arrange the Iron Ingots: In the crafting grid, you need to place the iron ingots in a specific pattern to create the anvil. Here's the breakdown:

    • Top Row: Fill the entire top row (all three squares) with iron ingots.
    • Middle Row: Place a single iron ingot in the center square of the second row.
    • Bottom Row: Fill the entire bottom row (all three squares) with iron ingots.
  3. Crafting the Anvil: Once you've arranged the iron ingots in the correct pattern, the anvil icon will appear in the crafting output box on the right. Click on the anvil icon to transfer it to your inventory.

Congratulations! You've successfully crafted an anvil.

Using the Anvil:

Anvils are primarily used for two things:

  • Repairing Tools and Armor: Place the anvil on the ground and right-click on it to open its interface. Here you can combine a damaged tool or piece of armor with the required resources (usually the same material the tool or armor is made from) to repair its durability.

  • Enchanting Items (Optional - Requires Experience Levels): You can also use anvils to enchant tools, weapons, and armor with special abilities. This requires experience levels and additional resources depending on the desired enchantment.

Additional Tips:

  • Anvils are quite heavy and cannot be stacked in your inventory.
  • Be mindful of where you place your anvil, as anvils can fall and damage any entity (including yourself) standing underneath them.
  • Remember, anvils are a valuable tool, so use them strategically to keep your gear in top condition and enhance your Minecraft experience!
