To make charcoal in Minecraft you will need to melt it by placing logs or wood in a furnace which will burn it and turn it into charcoal. It is primarily used as an alternative to coal early in the game, and can be made into light-emitting items such as torches or campfires.
How to use coal in Minecraft?
In Minecraft, Charcoal has a wide variety of uses, to begin with, and most importantly, Charcoal is a fuel source obtained by smelting logs or wood. In order for a player to get the most useful items in the game, he needs to smell or cook, and to do this, the player needs fuel.
Although coal is the most basic fuel in the game, it is better to use coal due to its wide availability and efficiency.
How to make coal in Minecraft
Making coal is a relatively simple process. First, you need to create an oven by creating eight cobblestone blocks together. Now that you’ve done that, you need to melt wood logs in this kiln. You can use coal, lava bucket or any wooden object in the lower fuel slot and then place the wooden log in the upper slot. No other wooden objects, not even planks, will create charcoal. Once the arrow is filled, you will have a lump of coal.
By comparison, coal looks a lot like coal in item slots, but they cannot be stacked in the same inventory slot. It also has the same uses, except that it cannot be combined into a coal block. You can use it to create torches, power minecarts, and smelt items.
The differences between charcoal and charcoal
Charcoal and charcoal are very similar and can be used for similar functions. However, they are not interchangeable in all situations, just in most.

What can you make with coal in Minecraft?
