2. Add Items to make Bamboo Planks

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make a spruce fence, place 4 spruce planks and 2 sticks in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making bamboo planks, it is important that the block of bamboo is placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 1 bamboo block in the first box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for bamboo planks.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the pattern, the 2 bamboo planks will appear in the box to the right.

Once you have crafted bamboo planks, you need to move the new item to your inventory.
