Name

stick

A stick is an item used for crafting many tools and items. They are created by placing two wood planks in a crafting square, one above the other. 32 wood planks or 8 wood blocks will create a full stack of sticks.

[edit] Obtaining

A witch may drop up to 6 sticks upon death. A bonus chest may contain stacks of 1–3 sticks and sticks can be obtained as junk by fishing. A boat will drop 2 sticks on impact.

As you may have noticed, you will get the same stick every time no matter what type of planks block you used to make the sticks with, severely limiting the amounts of colored wood items. The only wood planks items that actually follow the wood-color rule are slabs and stairs.

[edit] Usage

Sticks are used primarily as the handles for tools, torches, and weapons. They can also be used as the shaft of arrows, the post for signs or the ties of rails. Sticks are the only material required to craft a fence or ladder.

Sticks can also be used as a fuel source for furnaces. Though they are renewable, sticks are a less efficient fuel than wood planks, and require 2 sticks to be burned per furnace operation. Sticks are recommended for short jobs, like cooking pork, or if just a little more fuel is required to complete the current operation, and it would not complete otherwise. Note that it takes 3 sticks to do the same job as 1 wood plank. It is not recommended to use sticks if they have just been crafted, since the two planks used to craft the sticks can burn for 30 seconds (three smelting operations), while the four sticks produced by crafting those two planks will burn for just 20 seconds (two smelting operations).

When making ladders you can (with a stack of 64) place 9 sticks in each slot in the required pattern and have 1 left over. Also when making fences with a full stack there will be 11 in 4 slots and 10 in 2 others.

Indev
Indev 0.31 (January 29, 2010) Craftable sticks were added and were one of the first craftable items available in Minecraft. Their only use at the time was forming the handle of a pickaxe, axe or shovel. They could be used as fuel for furnaces as well.
Official release

  • Along with bones and blaze rods, sticks are wielded as a tool instead of an item.
