How to Get Smooth Stone in Minecraft

While they function the same as regular stones, smooth stones are great if you want to add a little bit of character to your house. Plus, since they’re super easy to make, you won’t have to waste much time making them. To get smooth stone in Minecraft, you’ll need to smelt Cobblestone in a Furnace.

To do this, you will need Cobblestone, fuel and a Furnace. Furnaces can be crafting by putting 8 Cobblestone in an O shape in a Crafting Table. Things like coal, wood and even sticks are considered fuel.

Alright, so you’ve got the furnace, fuel, and cobblestone in your inventory now, woohoo! You’re ready to make some smooth stones! To get smooth stones in Minecraft, follow the steps below:

  1. Open your furnace
  2. Place fuel in the bottom slot
  3. Place cobblestone in the top slot
  4. Move the smooth stone into your inventory

You can also get smooth stone in Minecraft by using a Silk Touch Enchanted Pickaxe on Stone. While Silk Touch is more of an advanced achievement, this is a much easier way to acquire smooth stone in Minecraft.

There you have it! If you have some extra fuel and cobblestone, just throw it into the furnace and let it do its thing. You can even leave and come back to it later to collect your smooth stones. As you can see, this process is easily repeatable and won’t take much time at all. 

Aside from decorations, smooth stone can also be used to craft smooth stone slabs and blast furnaces. If you’re not familiar with it, a blast furnace is pretty similar to a regular furnace except it’s able to smelt materials with half the experience and twice as fast. As you can see, it’s not a necessity, but if you’re planning on smelting a lot of stuff in the near future, you might want to take the time to build one. 

While you’re waiting for your smooth stone to finish smelting, you can start on your next project. As we mentioned earlier, there is an abundance of different items to be crafted in Minecraft, below are some of our other Minecraft guides that we think you’ll like:
