The forge is created using 7 cobblestone blocks in the player's crafting grid. Once crafted, the forge may be placed as any other block onto a solid surface. The forge can be broken (left mouse) and replaced with bare hands. No tools are required to break/remove the forge.
- Add coal or charcoal to the forge by holding shift + right mouse button
- Add ingots to the forge by holding shift + right mouse button. (The capacity of the forge is four ingots.)
- To ignite the forge, press shift + hold right mouse button the forge with a torch.
- Wait for the ingots to heat. As ingots heat, they will appear "glowing", and the ingot temperature is displayed in the forge dialog box.
- Use right mouse button to remove the ingot from the forge upon reaching the desired temperature.
Metal can be worked when ingots are heated to a temperature above 60% of the melting point. The forge will continue to heat items until all fuel is consumed. When the forge consumes all available fuel, it will be extinguished whether the ingots are heated or not. As of version 1.12, rain will also extinguish a forge.
The forge may be carried in player inventory, or stored in a stationary container.
