A lab table can be mined with a pickaxe. Mining without a pickaxe is very slow, but the lab table will still drop as an item.

- Times are for unenchanted tools in seconds. For more information, see Haste § Instant mining.
Using the lab table opens a 1×9 grid, where elements and compounds can be inserted to perform experiments. The locations of the items in the grid do not affect the outcome. When ready to conduct an experiment, clicking the 'Combine' button will initiate the process.
If the result is a viable product, the top images will animate to indicate whether a liquid, gas, or solid has been produced. Shortly after, the menu closes, and the successful product appears on the table. If the combined materials did not create a viable product, the process will result in a garbage item and one of few animations involving fire and/or explosions will occur. In Bedrock Edition, the table sometimes catches fire when garbage is made.

|1.0.27||Lab Table was added.|
|1.4.0||beta 22.214.171.124||Lab Table was added.|
|beta 126.96.36.199||Added Pocket UI screens.|
- Even when two compounds that in real life won't react to each other, like water and salt, or multiple items of the same compound, are combined in the lab table, the fire and/or explosion effect will still appear, creating a garbage item.
