This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a bamboo sign with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, a bamboo sign is a new item that will be introduced in Minecraft 1.20. It is an important basic item in your inventory. Signs are a great way to leave directions so that you don’t get lost in your world. Or, you can also use signs to leave fun messages for other players. The crafting process will create 3 bamboo signs at a time.

Let’s explore how to make a bamboo sign.

Where to find a Bamboo Sign in Creative Mode

Minecraft Java Edition (PC/Mac)

Here is where you can find a bamboo sign in the Creative Inventory menu:

1 Stick
6 Bamboo Planks

How to craft a Bamboo Sign in Survival Mode

1. Open the Crafting Menu

First, open your crafting table so that you have the 3×3 crafting grid that looks like this:

2. Add Items to make a Bamboo Sign

In the crafting menu, you should see a crafting area that is made up of a 3×3 crafting grid. To make a bamboo sign, place 6 bamboo planks and 1 stick in the 3×3 crafting grid.

When making a bamboo sign, it is important that the bamboo planks are placed in the exact pattern as the image below. In the first row, there should be 3 bamboo planks. In the second row, there should be 3 bamboo planks. In the third row, there should be 1 stick in the middle box. This is the Minecraft crafting recipe for a bamboo sign.

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the 3 bamboo signs will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Bamboo Sign to Inventory

Once you have crafted bamboo signs, you need to move the new items to your inventory.

Congratulations, you have made a bamboo sign in Minecraft!
