Learn how to make a custom crafting table that uses recipes and GUI.


This tutorial will teach you how to make a custom crafting station like the vanilla crafting table using a button element to craft the items with. You will need four main elements... A GUI is needed for the place to craft things. A block is needed to link the GUI to and you will need one main recipe procedure to be linked to your button, and then the last thing you will need is your recipe procedures that link to your main recipe procedure.

If you have any questions ask on my discord server under the #mcreator-help channel so others may be able to help if I am busy.

Block Settings

Most of the block settings can be customized to your liking.

GUI Settings

The GUI is now linked to the block before you had to link the block to the GUI, so now it is done in the blocks settings.

Below you can find the Y offset settings I used for the elements.

  • GUI Title (28)

  • Inventory Slots (33)

  • Buttons (30)

  • Inventory Title (20)


I suggest breaking your recipes up into smaller sections and calling them into your main button procedure, this way it will lower the lag and potential errors from rendering to many blocks.

I have added notes for all the major elements that you will need to configure so you know what everything does how to set it up and what it is for, etc.
