Petrified oak slabs are a unique type of slab available through commands or by upgrading from legacy versions. Unlike all other slabs, they are unobtainable through conventional Survival gameplay. In Java Edition, petrified oak slabs are also available in the Creative mode inventory.

Obtaining[]

Petrified oak slabs are unobtainable in Survival.

Breaking[]

Petrified oak slabs require a pickaxe to mine. When broken, they drop themselves in Java Edition, and regular oak slabs in Bedrock Edition.

Crafting[]

Petrified oak slabs are uncraftable in current versions without the use of a data pack or behavior pack.

Upgrading[]

Petrified oak slabs are obtainable and craftable as one would expect in versions released before Java Edition 1.3.1 (snapshot 12w17a) or Pocket Edition v0.7.3 alpha, in which they are the only wooden slab type.

Usage[]

Main article: Slab § Usage

Petrified oak slabs are functionally still slabs, and share the majority of their placement, collision and other such behaviors with normally obtainable slabs.

Before unique slabs corresponding to different wooden planks types were added, wooden slabs were treated like other stone-type slabs. They required a pickaxe to break, had a blast resistance greater than normal planks, had stone sounds and fire could not spread to them.

Differences from normal slabs[]

Petrified oak slabs are mostly notable for where their behavior diverges from that expected of their name and appearance.

Unlike other wooden slabs:

  • Petrified oak slabs make the sounds characteristic of stone.
  • They require a pickaxe to mine. If broken with anything but a pickaxe, they drop nothing.
  • They are not flammable.
  • They cannot be used as fuel in a furnace.
  • They have more blast resistance.
  • Note blocks placed on top of them produce bass drum sounds, similarly to other stone-like blocks.

Unlike other slabs in general:

  • They cannot be crafted, or indeed obtained normally in Survival.
  • They do not have a direct full-block equivalent.
  • In Bedrock Edition they do not drop themselves, but rather drop an oak slab.

History[]

Java Edition Beta
1.3Added petrified oak slabs.
Petrified oak slabs were the "usual" wood slab in this version, as they were craftable from planks like all other slabs were, and accordingly named "Wooden Slab" in item form.
Their behaviour was due to sharing a block ID with all other slabs at the time, distinguished only by metadata, which could not define other block properties such as material and hardness.
Java Edition
1.3.112w17aA separate block ID has been added for wooden slabs, to account for the addition of slabs with new wood types. This new ID also has the characteristics of normal wood blocks. As of this version, the petrified oak slab, still called "Wooden Slab", is now unobtainable, and can only be obtained by having them present in the world from previous versions (placed or as items).
1.1317w47a"Wooden Slab" has been renamed to "Petrified Oak Slab".
Petrified oak slabs have been made available in the Creative inventory.
Pocket Edition Alpha
v0.1.0Added petrified oak slabs, which are currently unobtainable.
v0.3.0Petrified oak slabs can be crafted.
Petrified oak slabs have been added to the Creative inventory.
v0.7.3Added proper wooden slabs. Petrified oak slabs are now unobtainable in this version.
They have been renamed from "Wooden Slab"[verify] to "Fake Wood Slab".
Petrified oak slabs now drop the new normal oak slabs.
Unknown
?"Fake Wood Slab" has been renamed back to "Wooden Slab"
Legacy Console Edition
?Added petrified oak slabs.
?Petrified oak slabs are no longer obtainable in Survival.
However, they still exist in the Creative inventory as the only type of oak slab there, despite birch spruce and jungle slabs also being present right next to it.
