Planks[a] are common blocks used in crafting recipes and are also the first thing that a player can craft in survival mode and adventure mode. Two categories of planks can be differentiated: flammable Overworld Planks made from tree logs, and nonflammable Nether Planks made from fungi stems.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Planks can be broken by hand, but using an axe speeds up the process.

Usage[edit]

Planks can be used for building structures, as crafting ingredients, and as fuel.

Crafting ingredient[edit]

Planks are used in many crafting recipes. Doors, fences, fence gates, slabs, stairs, boats, trapdoors, pressure plates, and buttons must be crafted from planks of the same type, and the crafted result depends on the type used. For other products, planks of different types can be mixed freely and the wood types in the product is indeterminate.

Overworld planks can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block. Nether planks (crimson and warped planks) cannot be used as fuel.

Repairing[edit]

Planks are the repair items for the wood tier, and thus can be used to repair the following items in an anvil:

Block data[edit]

See also: Data values

In Bedrock Edition, wood planks use the following data values:

DV Description
0 Oak Wood Planks
1 Spruce Wood Planks
2 Birch Wood Planks
3 Jungle Wood Planks
4 Acacia Wood Planks
5 Dark Oak Wood Planks

If a command is used to create planks with data value 6 or higher, the resulting planks have the data value 0 (oak planks).

Note: unlike in other editions, the names for wood planks (as listed with tooltips in the player's inventory and in the recipe book) in Bedrock Edition actually read "[wood type] Wood Planks," e.g. "Dark Oak Wood Planks." This was previously the case in other versions of the game but was changed in Java Edition 17w47a, and subsequently[when?] was changed in Pocket Edition to match.

Block states[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Many items crafted using planks or sticks have textures that most resemble oak planks, regardless of the species used to craft them. On the other hand, item frames and fletching tables resemble birch planks, cartography tables resemble dark oak planks, barrels resemble spruce planks, while smithing tables resemble crimson planks.
  • Crimson Planks and Warped Planks do not naturally generate, and are only available if crafted by a player.
