To build an Enchantment Table, you’ll need a crafting table and the following items.

  • 1x Book
  • 2x Diamonds
  • 4x Obsidian

Once you have these items, place three Obsidian blocks in the bottom row of the crafting table. In the next row, place one Diamond, then one block of Obsidian, then one Diamond again. In the top row, put a book in the center, and that’s how to craft an Enchantment Table in Minecraft. But how do you find these items?

How to make Obsidian in Minecraft

The quickest way to get Obsidian in Minecraft is by quenching lava with water. You’ll need a bucket, which you can easily make with three iron ingots. You’ll also need to find a pool of lava. Drop your water near the lava and the lava will turn into Obsidian.

You can’t use running lava though, so make sure it’s an actual lava block, else your lava will turn into cobblestone, which we don’t want.

How to find Diamonds in Minecraft

You can find Diamonds in Minecraft below level -40. They can spawn outside of this range, but it’s rare, so you’ll have to go down and look between levels -40 and -60. If you’d like to learn more, we have a full guide on where to find Diamonds in Minecraft.

How to make a Book in Minecraft

To craft a book, you’ll need three papers and one leather. Place these onto a crafting bench in a 2×2 square, and you’ll be able to make a book. You can learn more in my guide on how to make a bookshelf in Minecraft, which shows you where to get everything to make books.

And that’s really all there is to making an Enchantment Table in Minecraft. I hope you’ve found this useful!
