[Update] Minecraft - Pocket Edition: The complete crafting and smelting guide

He who smelt it, dealt it (Updated for version 0.4.0)
Product: Minecraft - Pocket Edition | Developer: Mojang | Publisher: Mojang | Genre: Adventure, Brain training
 
Minecraft - Pocket Edition Multiformat, thumbnail 1
Minecraft - Pocket Edition now includes crafting, smelting, and the harvesting of resources.

This opens up a whole new world of discovery and creation. You can turn some wood and stone into a hardy pickaxe, or melt sand down into glass. You can make decorative objects, or dye wool.

In our handy charts below, you can find out how to make everything in the world of Minecraft, and how to find the right materials.

Crafting - blocks

In the world of Minecraft, you can make most objects by crafting. Simply enter your inventory and then hit the 'craft' button in the top corner. If an object's name is written in white, it means you have the materials to make it.

Tap on the big ingredients list box on the right to craft the item, and instantly add it to your inventory.

Remember that you'll need to make a crafting table - and then tap on that - to make bigger and more elaborate objects. It's also worth noting that the in-game guide talks about things that simply aren't available in the game yet (cakes, mushroom stew, fish).

You can find the complete guide to Minecraft - Pocket Edition below. To make the objects on the left, you'll need the materials on the right. Note that sometimes you'll get more than one object in the process.

Smelting

Once you've crafted a furnace, tap on it to enter the smelting menu. This lets you make new objects by melting down certain materials. Here's how to use it.

Tap the top-most box, and then choose one of the highlighted materials from your inventory on the left of the screen. Then, tap the box below and pick one of your fuels. Some fuels are more effective than others - coal burns for ages, while sticks quickly burn up.

You need to provide enough fuel so that the material completely melts (represented by the arrow that changes from grey to white) before your fuel is used up. You can put in a lot of fuel, and you can collect any leftovers when the smelting process is over.

In our smelting guide below, you can make the objects in the left-hand column by melting down the material in the right-hand column. You can use any fuel you like.
