In Minecraft, inventory management and storage are the most important things for players. Keeping items organized and available to everyone that the player creates together is essential for cooperative games. In addition to Minecraft Chest, players can also make another type of storage: Barrel.
Chest or Barrel in Minecraft
Barrels are wooden storage vessels made from the wood. It functions almost identically to a chest. However, despite their similarities, the barrel has obvious advantages. They do not need the empty space above to open. This difference can make Barrels a better storage solution in small spaces. Since players can stack barrels and still open them, they can also be used for construction and decoration, as well as providing storage space. Fortunately, for gamers, the recipe is not much more complicated than making a basic Chest.
How to make a Barrel in Minecraft
Making barrels in Minecraft requires different recipes, depending on the version of the game the player is using. The Java and Bedrock editions of Minecraft have their own barrel recipes, which require planks and wood slabs or sticks and wood slabs. Wood slabs is a half-height block made up of three identical planks; this formula can make six planks of the same type.
Both recipes require the use of either type of wood slab on the top and bottom, but Bedrock Edition requires six sticks to complete the recipe, while the Java Edition of Minecraft requires six planks to complete. The color of the barrel remains the same regardless of the color and type of the planks and wood slabs.
