The Smithing Table is a very underrated block in Minecraft. Many new players won’t be able to appreciate the benefits and uses of the Smithing Table as they won’t use it for long periods. However, the table can still be very useful if players are able to use it correctly.
You can make the table by using four different types of wood planks and two iron ingots. These tables are also found in certain villages. You can break it with an axe. It drops as a normal object. The table is a less well-known but very useful item in the game. Players must be able to know when and how to use it.
How to use a Minecraft smithing table
When should the table be used?
Many players may make their way to the table and attempt to use it. Players will only need certain items, such as netherite ingots or any armor or diamond tool, to be able to use the table.
It is extremely rare to find Netherite in the game. It can be found in the Nether realm in the form rare Ancient Debris blocks. Players will not be allowed to use the table unless they have netherite Ingots.
Villagers can use the smithing tables as a job site block for toolsmiths so that they can trade with players.
How to use the table
You can use the table in two main ways: to convert armor and diamond tools into netherite and as a job site block for toolsmiths.
Conversion of armor and diamond tools into netherite
Players can upgrade their diamond gear to netherite by using an anvil. However, there are some trade-offs such as an increased work penalty and an enchantment fee. Players can convert their armor and diamond tools to netherite using the table without incurring any enchantment costs or work penalties.
The gear can be converted to work on the table. However, it will retain its enchantment. This is the main purpose of the table.
A villager mob can connect to a smithing tablet and become a toolsmith if it is within range of the table. The mob can trade different types of weapons to get emeralds. This trick can be used by players to hire any villager to become toolsmith. Some minecraft servers even encourage their players to roleplay as one.
