Minecraft Smithing table : how to make and use it ?

A Smithing table in Minecraft is a block used to upgrade Netherite diamond equipment with a Netherite ingot and smithing template. It is also used to apply ornaments to armor using smithing templates and ornamentation materials. Both processes retain all enchantments. This is the workbench of the village tool smith.

Upgrading Netherite diamond equipment

To make Netherite armor or equipment, you’ll need to use a Netherite Upgrade smithing template found in the remnants of Nether bastions, in addition to a Netherite ingot and your diamond equipment.

Combine a Netherite upgrade smithing template, any piece of diamond equipment, tool or weapon with a Netherite ingot in a Smithing table to obtain your Netherite item.

Upgrading equipment does not remove incompatible enchantments, such as several different protective enchantments.

Unlike anvils, using a Smithing table to upgrade equipment to Diamond in Netherite does not cost experience or increase the pre-work penalty.

Customize armor design

The armor trims system requires a compatible piece of armor, a smithing template and the desired color mineral/crystal. The same armor and trim materials are mutually exclusive : you can’t put a gold trim on gold armor, for example.

Changing professions

If a village has a Smithing table that has not been claimed by a villager, any nearby villager who has not chosen a task block has a chance to change his or her trade to Blacksmith.
