How To Make A Gate In Minecraft?

The making process of the Gate in Minecraft is simple. You can build a gate from any wood in the game. Let’s discuss the step-by-step process below.

1. Building A Gate

The first thing that you will need to build the gate will be four wooden planks. You can collect them from the villages or craft them by using a single wooden log.

2. The Crafting Table

Once you have the four wooden planks open the crafting table. You can open it by right-clicking for PC and if you have any sorts of controllers or consoles, then press L2 or Z2. 

3. Crafting The Sticks

To craft the sticks, place one plank block either in the 2nd or 5th square in the Crafting Table. Similarly, place another plank block just below the first one, either the 5th or 8th square of the crafting table.

Now, you will see sticks on the right side of the Crafting table. Drag them into your inventory.

4. Crafting The Gate:

Once you have the sticks in your inventory, place the remaining 2 blocks of plank that we collected earlier in the 5th and 8th square. The 5th square is the center square of the Crafting Table grid, and the 8th square comes below it.

After placing the two plank blocks, place sticks on either side of the blocks. To be more accurate, place them in the 4th, 6th, 7th, and 9th squares. You will now see the gate to the right drag it into your inventory.
