Minecraft: How to Make a Torch

In Minecraft, torches are essential to your survival in the game, and just to be able to see when you’re digging.

To make a torch, you can use the crafting section of your inventory, or the Crafting Table. You’ll need one Stick, and one piece of Coal or Charcoal. Coal is mined, from stone cubes that have black spots on them. Charcoal can be created in the Furnace by burning wood with any heat source.
