Smithing tables can spawn naturally inside toolsmith houses in villages.
Smithing tables can be broken by hand, but using an axe speeds up the process.
|Breaking time[note 1]|
- Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

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 cannot change jobs.
Smithing tables can be used to upgrade diamond gear to netherite.
Upgrading gear does not remove incompatible enchantments, such as multiple different Protection enchantments.
Smithing table recipes use the data pack system.
