Preliminary information

Fence on Minecraft

The Fence is an element that cannot be missing in a refuge on Minecraft. In fact, in addition to being a decorative object to be placed in the garden, in case you build a villa , it also allows you to contain the animals, so that they do not go around in an uncontrolled way.

You must know, in fact, that the fence, although it visually occupies only 1 block of space in height, actually occupies 1.5 of it. This means that it cannot be bypassed by almost all creatures that populate the world of Minecraft. An exception is made for spiders, as they literally climb the fence.

Given this property, the fences are also useful for other purposes, other than to contain and protect animals. Think, for example, if the area you explore most consists of crevasses: creating a protective railing with fences will allow you to avoid accidental falls.

In addition, they are also very useful for fixing ropes on them: if you have caught an animal and are keeping it on a leash, you can connect the latter to the fence, so you can let go. In this way, the animals will remain tied up near the place where you left them, without being able to escape.

How to make fences on Minecraft

If you want to know how to make fences on Minecraft , in the next chapters I will provide you with various information that will allow you to perform this operation easily, without you having to waste precious time.

Collect the necessary materials

Collect wood on Minecraft

The fence is mainly made of wood . This material is easily available in the game, even without using special tools. All you have to do is interact with the bare hands on the trees or use an ax on them, in order to obtain the Wooden Logs .

I warn you, however, that wooden fences may be weak, as they can easily be demolished with an ax. For this reason, it may be safer to make them with another more resistant material, in Nether Bricks , which is less fragile, as it can only be demolished with a pickaxe.

In this case, you need to get Netherrack , which is the material of which the Nether soil is made. Have you never been to this place? Do not worry. I explained how to access it in my guide on how to make the Nether portal .

Now that you have the basic resources, it’s time to work on them, so that you can build fences. The procedure differs according to the material with which you want to build this object.

If you want to build a wooden fence , what you have to do is place the wooden logs collected inside a slot on the workbench or in the slot of the Manufacturing section , located in the inventory. In doing so, these resources will be automatically converted into Wood Planks .

Once this is done, you must also get some sticks . You can obtain these by placing 2 units of wooden planks in a workbench or in the Manufacturing section of the inventory. When you have all the necessary materials available, in a workbench insert 4 units of wooden boards and 2 units of sticks , in order to generate 3 units of fences .

Nether brick fence

If you want to make a Nether Brick Fence instead , after you have obtained the Netherrack , place it inside a Furnace , so that you can work it and convert it to Nether Brick . You will also need the Bricks of the Nether , items that are obtained by putting together 4 units of Bricks of the Nether in a workbench.

Now, still within the latter, add 4 units of Nether Bricks and 2 units of Nether Brick , so as to build 6 units of Nether Bricks Fence .

Building a fence

After getting the Fence units , what you need to do is place them on the ground in order to build a fence. Obviously, the amount of this object to use varies based on how large you want to build it.

All you have to do is equip the fence units in a quick slot and place the first element on the ground. At this point, place another one next to it, so that a fence is created.

All you have to do is continue along the entire perimeter that constitutes the fence you want to build, in order to complete the project. I warn you that, to access the fenced area, it is important to also build a gate .

You can easily build this object with the materials you already have available. All you have to do is put 4 units of Staff and 2 units of Wooden Boards in a workbench .

Mod to make fences on Minecraft

Mod for fences

If you don’t like the style of the predefined fences in Minecraft, you can build others with a different design by installing the MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod . It is an additional component that provides various decorative elements for your shelter.

To use it, however, you must first install Minecraft Forge , which you can download for free from its website . It is another add-on that aims to manage the mods for this video game.

After viewing the Minecraft Forge homepage, press the Installer button to download the installation file on your PC. When the download is complete, double-click on the file you just downloaded, to open it with Java Platform . Press the OK button to complete the installation.

Now, go to the official website of the MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod mod and download the same version compatible with Minecraft Forge, which you can find in the Download section .

After that, move the file you just downloaded to the mod folder , located in the path C: Users [name] AppDataRoaming.minecraft . If you don’t find the folder in question, create it manually, as I explained in my guide .

OK, we’re almost there! Start Minecraft and press the icon , which you will find next to the Play button . Then select the Forge profile and press the Play button .

Now you just have to enter a world in Creative mode and select the MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod tab , located in the inventory. You will find the fences in the list of new elements added by the mod.
