How to Make Chests in "Minecraft"

"Minecraft" is an online independent sandbox-creation game, inspired by such games as "Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress" and "Dungeon Keeper." In this game, your entire environment can help you create other items. For example, chopping down trees lets you create wood, which lets you create sticks to build tools. This is also true if you want to build a chest to store your extra materials.

      Press "I" to open your inventory and the craft options. Place all the wood in any of the squares on the 2x2 crafting grid. This makes wooden blocks appear in the results box. Click and drag them to your inventory to create them. Each piece of wood creates four wooden blocks.

      Put four wooden blocks into the 2x2 crafting grid so that it resembles a square. This causes a worktable to appear in the results box. Drag it into the "1" box in your inventory. This equips the worktable.
