How to make a Blast Furnace in Minecraft

This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a blast furnace with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, the blast furnace is another important item in your inventory. A blast furnace is used to smelt items in the game, similar to a furnace. However, a blast furnace smelts twice as fast as a furnace! A blast furnace can be found in a Village in the Armorer’s house.

Let’s explore how to make a blast furnace.
