    In the top slot of a furnace, put any sort of wood, so long as it's not a plank. Then, for the fuel, place a bucket of lava, coal, wooden planks, or anything else that'll help smelt it.
    Thanks!

Quick Summary

To get charcoal instead of coal in Minecraft, start by mining 4 blocks of wood. Then, use 3 of the blocks of wood to create 12 planks in the crafting menu. Once you've created the planks, make 4 sticks and a crafting table. Next, put the crafting table on the ground and use it to create a pickaxe. Then, take the pickaxe and mine 8 cobblestone blocks and use them to create a furnace with your crafting table. Finally, put the furnace on the ground, open it, and use a block of wood and a plank to create charcoal.

Did this summary help you?
  • Charcoal doesn't occur naturally in Minecraft's world.
  • You can plant trees around your house to have an endless supply of charcoal-producing materials.
  • Charcoal will burn for far longer than a wooden plank or a stick.

Warnings

  • Try not to venture too far away from your starting spot. If you die while holding onto your gathered materials, you will lose them.
