How to make a Shear in Minecraft

Shear is one of the tools in Minecraft that can be crafted and act just like a normal scissor in the real world. It can be used to remove the wool from sheep and other than that you can use it to make a carved pumpkin and use that to make a snow golem as well.

Materials Required to Make a Shear

You need to place 2 iron ingots on the crafting table to make a shear.

How to Make Iron Ingots in Minecraft

The first item that you need is to find the iron ore and for that, you need to explore different caves, dungeons, and mountains. If you are unfamiliar with iron ore, then you can get a better picture by viewing the below-given image:

Now it is recommended that before searching for iron ore you should build at least a stone pickaxe or any other of higher level. You can’t mine it with your hands only and a wooden pickaxe won’t work on it either. We have discussed the recipe for making a stone pickaxe below where you need 3 cobblestones and 2 sticks.

To craft cobblestones, you should have a wooden pickaxe which requires 3 wooden planks and 2 wooden sticks to build.

Crafting Wooden Planks: For making planks you can use a wooden log that you can get by chopping any tree either with your hands or by using any available axe.

Next, you need to mine at least 2 blocks of iron ore that would be sufficient to make a shear. Place them inside a furnace and put some fuel and it will give you 2 iron ingots. If you don’t have the furnace, then you should mine 8 more cobblestones that will be used to make a furnace by placing them on the crafting table.
