How to Make a Grindstone in Minecraft

Grindstone is a block available in the Minecraft game that can be used to repair items. Items will start losing their durability after using them a few times and they will eventually break, and you won’t be able to use them again.

So what you can do is to craft them again which is a time-consuming process as you need to collect those items again or you can also use a grindstone to repair those items which is an efficient and time-saving process. You will not only repair items such as a shovel or pickaxe but you can also repair items like swords and bows:

Grindstone can be made by using sticks, stone slabs, and wooden planks whereas you can see their required quantity in the table below.

How to Make a Stone Slab
