Construct a bed in Minecraft with three pieces of wool and three wooden planks using a crafting table. A bed is an essential piece of furniture that serves as a reappearance point after your character dies in the game.
- Gather resources
Obtain wood and wool for raw materials. Wood becomes wooden planks after placing cubic pieces of chopped trees in a crafting table. Kill sheep to get wool. Trees and sheep are found in the wild in certain biomes of Minecraft.
- Place wool and wooden planks in a crafting table
Fill an entire row of a crafting table with wool. Then, fill the row directly below the wool with wooden planks. Use any variety of trees and any colored wool to construct a bed.
- Place the item
Put the bed anywhere you want as long as there are at least two blocks of space away from the direction you face. A bed takes up two blocks. You cannot put a bed on snow, ice, glowstone, glass, carpet or leaves.
- Sleep at night
Right-click on beds to sleep at night to avoid fighting nocturnal mobs. If creatures are nearby, a message appears letting you know it is too dangerous to sleep. You re-spawn at the last place you slept before dying in the game.
