How To Make a Stonecutter in Minecraft

One of the main features that every player realizes once they enter the world of Minecraft is the incredible availability of stone. In fact, you can see its abundance everywhere. Stone is also a very resistant material that is suitable for a thousand uses. You can build buildings but also tools and various very useful tools. To work the stone Minecraft allows you to use a particular tool so as not to have to resort to the workbench: it is the stonecutter. The advantage of the stonecutter, in fact, compared to the workbench, lies in the fact that for its functioning only one object is needed as an ingredient for the creation of stone artifacts, as opposed to what happens in the workbench, where things are more complicated.

The stonecutter is in fact a tool specially made for working with stone and it constitutes a magnificent resource that can provide you with a great help in survival within the world of Minecraft! With the stonecutter, for example, you can obtain end stone, andesite, cobblestone, diorite, granite, nether bricks, quartz, prismarine, sandstone, purpur and many other types of more or less smooth blocks.
