Although Minecraft is a powerful creative tool, it does have limitations. The scarcity of block types and their linear size tends to make the creation of certain detailed objects a challenge. This is especially so with furniture, but there are some easy tricks you can use to make several types of furniture in Minecraft—no texturepacks or mods required.
Thinking Outside the Block
The key to making furniture in Minecraft is creativity. When creating pieces for your home, office, or bat cave, a clever use of items will go far. As you'll see, the process is actually really simple and fun. For the most part we're going to make objects that look like furniture, which means that you can pretty well make endless variations to your designs. The items most commonly used to make Minecraft furniture include:
Old fashioned blocks
Making furniture is all about using your imagination and making something look believable. If it's believable to you, chances are other people will know what it is. Take your time and try clever tricks. The fish tank is a great example of thinking outside the box, and making clever use of block types. This, after all, is the key to making furniture: using blocks in a way they were never intended.
