For those who enjoy exploring the depths of Minecraft, a minecart can make the journey much easier and efficient. With a few simple steps, you can craft your own minecart and start your adventure in style.

Materials Needed

  • Iron Ingot (5)

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Open your Crafting Table
  2. Ensure that all the 3×3 crafting grids are empty except for the center box, which should have a single stick.
  3. In the next grid, place the iron ingots in a “U” shape with one iron ingot at each corner of the grid, and one in the center.
  4. Drag your completed minecart into your inventory slot, and voila – you’ve crafted your very own minecart!

Additional Tips & Tricks

  • If you place a furnace at the back of your minecart, you can use it to smelt any ores you find during your travels.
  • Attach a chest to your minecart to bring along any items you may need during your journey.
  • A minecart can travel at higher speeds if you place powered rails at intervals throughout your journey.
  • If you want to ride your minecart, simply right-click on the cart to get in. Press the “jump” key to get out and take control of the cart’s direction again.


By following these few simple steps, you’ll be able to craft your very own minecart in no time. Don’t forget to accessorize your cart with a furnace or chest, and add some powered rails to speed up your mining journey. Happy exploring!
