Firstly, open the crafting table so that you can have the 3 by 3 crafting grid look like this.
Step 2: Add Items to make a Blast Furnace
In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make a blast furnace, place 5 iron ingot, 1 furnace and 3 smooth stone in the 3×3 crafting grid.
When making a blast furnace, it is significant to note that that the iron ingot, furnace and smooth stone are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 3 iron ingot. In the second row, there should be 1 iron ingot in the first box, 1 furnace in the second box, and 1 iron ingot in the third box. In the third row, there should be 3 smooth stone. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a blast furnace.
Step 3: Move the Blast Furnace to Inventory
Once you have created a blast furnace for yourself, you need to move the new item to your inventory.
