*

2. Add Items to make Oak Planks

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3x3 crafting grid. To make oak planks, place 1 oak log in the 3x3 crafting grid.

When making oak planks, it is important that the oak log is placed in the exact pattern as the image below. There should be 1 oak log in the center box and all other boxes should be empty. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for oak planks.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the 4 oak planks will appear in the box to the right.
