Required Materials to Make Oak Wooden Door

In this article we are going to discuss the recipe for making the oak door, you can follow the same recipe to make other doors as well. Making it requires you to make 6 oak planks first and for that you need to find and chop the wooden oak tree that will give you an oak log. Oak tree is one of the most common trees available in the Minecraft game but if you are still unfamiliar with it then let me tell you that it is in dark brown color as shown in the image below. You can find this tree almost in every other biome but some of the common ones are the plains and jungle biome.

After finding this tree the next thing you need to do is to chop it and you can do it many ways. If you don’t have any tool then you can chop it with your bare hands as well but acquiring the required tool which is an axe in this case is highly recommended to increase the chopping speed.
