Minecraft players can find smooth stones in some houses in plains, savanna, and snowy tundra villages in the Butcher's house. They are available as loot in the chests in the form of slabs and blocks. However, the chances of getting smooth stones by this method are not high.

How to Make a Smooth Stone in Minecraft?

To make smooth stones, the first thing you need to do is to gather all the ingredients and tools. You will need a furnace, cobblestone blocks, and some kind of fuel.

  • Furnace: The furnace is a basic block that you can craft using 8 cobblestones. Place them to form a square in the crafting table, but leave the middle block. If you're planning to make a lot of smooth stones, we recommend crafting multiple furnaces to speed up the process.
  • Cobblestone: This basic building block is really easy to obtain. Dig around right where you standing and you should find cobblestones in abundance.
  • Fuel: The best fuel for the job is coal, another common find in Minecraft. Or if you don't have access to coal, make some charcoal by smelting wood with the furnace. And if you don't really care about efficiency, just use wood as your fuel.

Once you have gathered and collected all the materials and tools, it's time to make some smooth stones.

To make Smooth Stone, just smelt cobblestone in a furnace twice. Here's a step-by-step guide with pictures:

How To Make Smooth Sandstone In Minecraft?

Making smooth sandstones is just the same as making smooth stones. The idea is you smelt the sandstone blocks inside the furnace to make them smooth. Sandstones can naturally generate a few meters below natural sand deposits. If you don't have any luck finding any large deposits around, craft sandstones yourself by placing 4 sand blocks in the 2×2 crafting area.
