2. Add Items to make Bamboo Stairs

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

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

Now that you have filled the crafting area with the correct pattern, the 4 bamboo stairs will appear in the box to the right.

3. Move the Bamboo Stairs to Inventory

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