A smithing table is a toolsmith's job site block that generates in villages. It can be used to upgrade diamond gear into netherite gear.

The UI for the smithing table.

Obtaining[]

Smithing tables can be obtained from a village or crafting.

Natural generation[]

Smithing tables can spawn naturally inside toolsmith houses in villages.

Breaking[]

Smithing tables can be broken by hand, but using an axe speeds up the process.

  1. Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

Crafting[]

Ingredients Crafting recipe
Iron Ingot +
Any Planks

Usage[]

Smithing tables can be used only to upgrade diamond tools and armor to netherite. Smithing tables also do not affect NBT data of items.

Change profession[]

If a village contains a smithing table that has not been claimed by a villager, any villager who hasn't already chosen a job site block has a chance to change their profession to toolsmith. If a villager with this profession has already been traded with, it cannot change jobs.

Fuel[]

Smithing tables can be used as fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block.

Upgrading To Netherite[]

Smithing tables can be used to upgrade diamond gear to netherite.

While doing so, the newly crafted netherite gear retains the enchantments, prior work penalty and number of durability points lost (instead of the remaining durability) from the diamond gear.

Upgrading gear does not remove incompatible enchantments, such as multiple different Protection enchantments.

Unlike anvils, using a smithing table to upgrade diamond gear to netherite gear costs no experience and does not increase the prior work penalty.

Smithing table recipes use the data pack system.
