Advancement-plain-raw.png
Obtain a crafting table.

This one is easy. Just hold down the left-click on a wood block until it breaks, then collect the dropped block by walking over it.

Wood blocks are found on trees, which are very easy to find (as long as you didn't start out in an ocean or desert biome). Just look around.

Alternatively, you can simply pick up any wood log lying on the ground.

Use the wood block you just got from the tree and open your inventory. You will see a grid near the top-right corner, place your wood block in any of those grids.

Then click on the wooden planks that appear to obtain them.

At last put one of the four wood planks you got into each container of your grid (a 2x2 square of wood planks). You can right click to place a single plank into the grid, instead of all four.
