Minecraft Fletching Table
On your travels through the different worlds in Minecraft, you may have come across a wooden box with a target on the side. This is not an enormous dartboard, but a fletching table. Read here to find out what a fletching table can do for you, how to find it and why a fletching table can make Minecraft easier for you.
What the Minecraft Fletching Table can do
Because a fletching table is so well known, you often see questions in forums about how a fletching table can make Minecraft easier.
If you find a fletching table in Minecraft, you can’t do anything with it at first. As a player, you cannot interact with the block. You can use it in a furnace, like charcoal, as fuel in the oven, but you’re wasting it.
This is what the Minecraft fletching table can do:
- It functions as a workstation block
- It can train an unemployed villager to become a fletcher.
- It can be used as fuel for 1.5 smelted items
- It can be used as decoration
Rather than getting one and a half smeltings out of the fletching table, have one of your unemployed villagers interact with it. This is how the Minecraft fletching table unleashes its true potential.
Trading with the Fletcher
If you let an unemployed villager work with the fletching table, he will take up the profession of fletcher. The fletcher, as the name suggests, is responsible for making arrows. But he also offers bows and crossbows. At the higher levels of his training, you can even buy enchanted weapons and tipped arrows from the fletcher.
You can buy these things from a fletcher:
- Enchanted Bows
- Enchanted Crossbows
- Tipped Arrows
This way, the fletching table makes Minecraft a bit easier, as you don’t have to search for the corresponding ingredients and you don’t have to craft the equipment yourself. Tipped arrows in particular are hard to find, as you need potions to make them, especially lingering potions, which in turn can only be made with the dragon breath of the Ender Dragon [link to text about dragons in Minecraft]. With the fletcher, the fletching table allows you to skip all these steps.
How to get a Fletching table in Minecraft
If you want to get one of the villagers to take up this profession, you will have to make a fletching table yourself. This is quite easy, as all you need is a block of planks and some flint.
4x planks (any wood) + 2x flint = 1x fletching table
Planks can be made directly from any block of wood, flint can be found when mining gravel. With the material you simply go to a workshop block and you can start training your personal fletcher.
Conclusion Minecraft Fletching table
At first glance, the fletching table may seem useless. But if you take a closer look at its uses, you will quickly see its benefits. Having a fletcher in the village can pay off especially on higher levels. When you no longer have to fight the ender dragon for every tipped arrow you make, you will really appreciate the fletcher.
