Catches fire from lava?


A smithing table is a toolsmith's job site block that generates in villages, and a crafting station used to craft all netherite tools, weapons, and armor.

The UI for the smithing table.


Smithing tables can generate naturally inside toolsmith houses in villages.


Ingredients Crafting recipe
Iron Ingot +
Any Planks

Despite being crafted from iron ingots, smithing tables cannot be smelted to make iron nuggets.


Smithing tables can only be used to craft netherite armor and tools.‌[upcoming: JE 1.16]

Change profession[edit]

If a village contains a smithing table that has not been claimed by a villager, any villager who hasn't already chosen a job site block has a chance to change their profession to toolsmith. If a villager with this profession has already been traded with, it can not change jobs.


Smithing tables can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Netherite upgrade[edit]

A smithing table can be used to upgrade diamond gear to netherite.‌[upcoming: JE 1.16]

While doing so, the newly crafted netherite gear retains the enchantments the diamond gear once had.

Unlike anvils, using a smithing table to upgrade diamond gear to netherite gear costs no experience.

Upgrading damaged diamond gear results in netherite gear with the same amount of damage sustained.
