How to craft a Minecart in Minecraft

#1 Crafting Iron Ingots


Iron is an ore that is used extensively in Minecraft recipes. To acquire Iron, you can head down to the caves and mine some Iron Ore. Then smelt that iron ore using a furnace to get Iron Ingots. You can also get Iron Ingots from Iron blocks and Iron Nuggets. Killing an Iron Golem can also give Iron Ingots.

After you’ve successfully acquired the 5xIron Ingots in the game, in your crafting table, put them by the recipe shown above, and you’ll have crafted your own Minecart. After this, you can simply place the Minecart on rails to start moving.

As of now, there are 4 different Minecarts in the game, the Minecart with Chest, Minecart with furnace, Minecart with TNT, and Minecart with Hopper.
