How to craft Shield in Minecraft

#1 Collect 6x Planks

Planks can be found pretty much anywhere in the world. They are generated naturally in most structures like Mineshafts, Villages, Strongholds, Woodland Mansions, Shipwrecks, and more!


But the best way to craft Planks is to use 1x Log/Wood/Stripped Log/Stripped Wood. They yield 4x Planks each.

#2 Collect 1x Iron Ingot

Iron Ingot can be obtained by smelting Iron Ore, Deepslate Iron Ore, or Raw Iron in the Furnace. They will give 1x Iron Ingot.
