Smooth Stone: A Guide to Crafting and Using

Stone is one of the most common blocks in Minecraft, but some players prefer a cleaner and smoother texture for their builds. That's where Smooth Stone comes in - a variant of the classic stone block that has been around since Minecraft Classic. In this article, we'll cover how to make Smooth Stone and how to use it in your Minecraft builds.

How to Make Smooth Stone

Smooth Stone is a light gray block with a visible outline and is created by smelting Stone blocks in a Furnace. The conversion ratio is 1:1, so you'll get one Smooth Stone block for each Stone block you smelt.

Crafting Smooth Stone Slabs

To craft Smooth Stone Slabs, you'll need three Smooth Stone blocks. Place them in a row in a Crafting Table, and you'll get six Smooth Stone Slabs. Unlike other slabs, Smooth Stone Slabs do not stack when placed on top of each other, creating a layered double-slab pattern.

Obtaining Smooth Stone

Smooth Stone can only be obtained through crafting or finding it in villages and houses. To mine it, you'll need a pickaxe. The Stonecutter can also be used on Smooth Stone, allowing you to obtain a single slab instead of six. However, it's worth noting that Smooth Stone cannot be used to make stairs or any other specific item.

Uses of Smooth Stone

Smooth Stone is primarily used as a decorative block and to accent buildings and structures in Minecraft. Its unique appearance and smooth texture make it a popular choice for players who want to add a touch of elegance to their builds.


Smooth Stone is a versatile block in Minecraft that can be used to enhance the aesthetic of your builds. With its easy-to-follow crafting process, players can add this interesting block to their inventory and start using it in their builds. Whether you're a seasoned player or a beginner, Smooth Stone is a great addition to your Minecraft experience.
