How To Make A Sign in Minecraft
1. Gather The Requirements For Making The Sign
The first thing you should do is to collect wood. You can use an axe to chop down a nearby tree and then collect wood and store it in your inventory. To be exact, you will need 6 wooden planks and 1 Stick. To craft wooden planks and sticks, do this:
2. Crafting The Planks And A Stick With Wood.
If you already have the required materials, you can skip to the next step. However, if you don’t, then to make wooden planks and a stick:
- Once you cut down a tree, move the wood to your inventory. Then use the same wood by placing it in the crafting table to get 4 wooden planks. But we will need at least 6 wooden planks for making the sign. So, use two wooden blocks, which will give you 8 planks.
- To craft sticks, place the extra 2 wooden planks in the crafting table to get sticks as an output. Then move the sticks to your inventory.
3. Crafting The Sign
Place the 6 Wooden planks on the first six squares of the crafting table (go horizontally). The wooden planks should be of the same type and color and should occupy the first two rows’ crafting table. In the last row, place a stick in the middle column, and voila! There you have your very own sign board made, but the job isn’t over yet!
4. Placing The Sign
You can place the sign anywhere you want. You can place it on the ground floor, and it will look like a normal sign with a stick anchoring it to the ground. You can place it on the wall too! In that case, no stick will appear and you will be able to see the sign.
If you place a sign while standing diagonal to an area or an object, the sign will face the same way. Things that you can place signs on:
Underwater – if you place the sign underwater, a water bubble will escape that area after the placement, which you can use to breathe underwater and meet your O2 requirements.
5. Writing On The Sign
As soon as you place the sign in your desired location, a text box will appear on the signboard. The box includes 4 lines, and each line can hold up to 15 characters taking the total capacity to 60 characters.
