Scaffolding is broken instantly, and no tools are required.
The placement of scaffolding is different from any other blocks in the game. When pressing use on the side of a scaffolding, the scaffolding is added on top of the highest scaffolding in that location, allowing the player to build the scaffolding structure higher on the ground. Pressing use on the top face of the scaffolding adds the scaffolding to the side, depending on the direction the player is facing. While sneaking, pressing use on the top face of the scaffolding places the new scaffolding on top of the targeted one if the top is available, otherwise it is placed under the targeted scaffolding if possible. Pressing use on the side while sneaking places it on the side like placing other blocks.
Scaffolding has no collision detection. The player can climb up or down by jumping or sneaking respectively. A scaffolding block can be moved by pistons, allowing them to be broken easily.
In Bedrock and PlayStation 4 editions, scaffolding cannot be placed inside lava; if scaffolding is placed next to lava or fire, the scaffolding is destroyed. If it falls into lava or fire, it is destroyed immediately.
In Java Edition, scaffolding can be placed inside lava but burns after some time.
When holding scaffolding, the hitbox of scaffolding in the world is a full block. Otherwise, a player can interact with other blocks through the scaffolding.
Scaffolding can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 0.25[until JE 1.15] 2[upcoming: JE 1.15] items per block in the Java Edition and PlayStation 4 Edition, and 6 items per block in the Bedrock Edition.
