If you are one of those who like to build things with your own two hands, you might want to know how to make a lectern in Minecraft. A Minecraft lectern is a stationary block in the game that has several uses.
Required Materials for Lectern
- Four Wooden Slabs
- One Bookshelf
- Crafting Table
It is possible to use any wooden slab to the lectern. The kind of timber doesn’t matter and you’ll be able to mix and match unique slabs with this recipe.
The hardest aspect of producing a lectern is creating a bookshelf. The bookshelf is comparatively affordable, but it may be a nuisance if there are not any cows nearby.
To earn a lectern you’ll want the 3×3 crafting menu of a crafting table.
How to make a lectern
In this tutorial, you will learn how to make a lectern in Minecraft and then use it within the game! Here are some of the reasons why this tutorial is important for those people who like to build things by themselves:
– A lectern can be used for multiple purposes. A vanilla Minecraft lectern will not work in Pocket Edition or any mod version after the update to 1.5. It is still possible to make one in the original game, but there are several limitations. A vanilla lectern will only emit light when a villager or a player touches it, so other than that, it is a glorified flashlight. It will also not emit any particles when it is picked up or held.
– If a wooden slab becomes damaged while crafting, you can repair it by breaking the piece of wood and then re-using the damaged piece. In this way, by using one wooden slab, you can make several wooden lecterns for your inventory. A vanilla lectern has limited space, so the crafting table won’t allow you to create more of these slabs. You will also be unable to shift them around much.
– Using an ore dictionary, you will be able to determine which slabs will emit light when they are broken. This means that you can use up all the colored rocks to have a complete set of colored lamps for crafting. You can then combine all the rocks to make one large lectern and put it on top of a crafted wooden chest. The combined color of the rocks will glow and shine under a UV light, emitting light and providing sufficient light for crafting.
– If you don’t like the idea of using up lots of slabs, try using a book and a crafting menu instead. Place all of your colored rocks in front of a crafting grid, and then place the book in front of the grid. When you let go of the crafting menu, a small mining lamp will be generated next to the lectern. Then, place the mined-up rocks on top of the newly generated book to form a very impressive and full-sized lectern.
This is just an example of how to make a lectern that will generate light when a crafted block is placed underneath it. In a nutshell, wooden lecterns are best used as centerpieces in villages with lots of crafting space.
Crafted wooden lecterns also look great in the corners of your home or your business office. With a bit of creativity, you will find ways to make a lectern that is perfect for your craft projects.
