Smelting ingredient

Charcoal Any Wood⃂+
Any fuel














Fuel

Wood logs can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block. It is far more efficient to craft each wood block into four wood planks Wood Planks Transparency No Luminance No Blast resistance 15 Tool Renewable Yes Stackable Yes (64) Flammable Yes Drops Itself Data value dec: 05 hex: 5 bin: 101 Name planks Wood planks are common blocks used in many crafting minecraft : each plank will burn as long as the log would have, for a total of 6 items.

Smelting wood into charcoal is slightly better: each charcoal will smelt 8 items, but the charcoal itself needs to be smelted. The net items smelted therefore is 7. Also, the increased need to load and unload items will usually result in some loss of smelting time.

Data values

The wood blocks are defined by block IDs and block data. They also have block states which may replace block data in the future.

Note that when a wood block is placed, it changes its facing parameters, placing in the direction relative to the block it is placed on.
