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.[until 1.12]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The new icon for Minecraft (not the launcher) is a crafting table.
  • The original inventory screen before January 29, 2010 was the crafting table interface, meaning there was no way of putting on armor yet, and the player could not be seen.
