How-to Minecraft - How to make a bed

How to Craft a Bed in Minecraft

It doesn't matter if you're an all-nighter type of player in Minecraft; you need a bed. Beds serve both as a way to pass through the night/rain in Minecraft and as a respawn point. Basically, if you're not the type of player who mines all night, you're going to be bored without a bed, and all players without beds won't be able to spawn at their home, forcing them to pretty much start all over again. Now, after all that hard work, that'd be annoying, so it's best that you learn how to make a bed, and soon!

Quick Summary

1. Open the crafting table.
2. Place 3 wool on the center line.
3. Fill the remaining squares with planks.
4. Drag the bed to the inventory.

Did this summary help you?


  1. Make the planks.Head back to a Workbench/ Crafting table and craft Wooden Planks. Get your Wood out and simply put the Wood in any slot. Take out the Wooden Planks.
    • Wood can be found by destroying trees. You can destroy trees with an axe but it is also possible to punch them to obtain wood, although this takes significantly longer.
  2. Place the wool in the crafting grid.Put 3 Wool in the middle of the three by three grid.
    • Wool can be found by shearing or killing sheep. Shearing (which will not kill the sheep) requires sheers, which are made by crafting together 2 iron ingots. Shearing also potentially produces more wool than killing.
  3. Place the planks in the crafting grid.After that, put the 3 Wooden Planks on all of the bottom slots.
  4. Take the bed from the crafting box.The result of this process will be a bed. Click on the bed and put the bed in your inventory or your hot bar.
    • You can make colored beds since the version 1.12 of Minecraft. Follow these steps, but change the color of the wool you use.
  5. Place your bed wherever you would like it to go.Place your bed in your house (or any place which keeps you safe) and sleep peacefully on your bed. This has the added bonus of creating a new spawn point, after which you will always spawn next to your bed after death.
    • Keep in mind that the wool has to be the same color since colored beds are now added.

    Chainmail armor can't be crafted in normal survival mode, because it is made with fire. Creative users have it, but you need the "lots of items" mod to gain access to fire to make the chainmail armor.

    You can craft a crafting table by pressing 'E' and putting oak/birch/dark oak/spruce wooden planks in the four slots available at the top right corner. Pick the crafting table out of the slot and place it down.

    That means you're using the crafting table in your inventory. Punch down one block of wood from a tree, place that log in your inventory's crafting table, and then use the four wooden planks in each grid to make a crafting table. The physical block has a 9-grid pattern and you can make your bed easily.

    No you cannot. You can only sleep when there are no mobs around you. It'll say whether or not there are mobs around, so you'll know whether or not you can sleep.

  • In Minecraft 1.8.9 and below, you can use different types of wool to make a bed. But in Minecraft 1.9 and above, you must use the same colored wool since the addition of multi-colored beds.
  • Can't find sheep? Make wool from string that drops from spiders.
  • Place the bed in a safe place, such as your house.
  • Since beds explode in the Nether and in the End, they're effective ways to kill the Ender dragon, and Nether mobs. However, it is suggested that you should have strong armor (iron at the least, gold or diamond preferred) and that you only use it on the Ender dragon for maximum effectiveness.


  • Trying to sleep in a bed in the Nether And/or The End will cause it to explode.
  • If there are mobs (apart from slimes and passive mobs) nearby when you try to sleep, you will be unable to go to sleep.

Things You'll Need

  • Three wooden planks
  • Three wools
  • Crafting table
  • Flat 1x2 surface
