Usage[edit | edit source]

Pressing use on a crafting table placed in the world will open the 3×3 crafting grid which allows you to craft more items than with the crafting grid in your inventory.

If you disconnect, move more than eight blocks away or close the crafting interface the items inside will drop in front of you.

Fuel[edit | edit source]

When used as a fuel in a furnace, a crafting table lasts 15 seconds (or 1.5 items).
