Preliminary information

The Fence is an element that cannot be missing in a shelter in Minecraft. In fact, in addition to being a decorative object to be placed in the garden, in the event that a villa is built, it also allows animals to be contained, so that they do not go around in an uncontrolled way.

You should know, in fact, that although the fence visually occupies only 1 block of space in height, it actually occupies 1.5. This means that it cannot be overridden by almost all creatures that populate the world of Minecraft. An exception is made for spiders, as they literally climb the fence.

Given this property, fences are also useful for other purposes, other than to contain and protect animals. Think, for example, if the area you explore the most is made up of crevasses: creating a protective railing with fences will allow you to avoid accidental falls.

In addition, they are also very useful for attaching ropes to them: if you have caught an animal and are keeping it on a leash, you can connect it to the fence, so that you can let go. By doing so, the animals will remain tied up near the place where you left them, without them being able to escape.

How to make fences in Minecraft

If you want to know how to make fences in Minecraft, in the next chapters I will provide you with various information that will allow you to do this easily, without you having to waste precious time.

Gather the necessary materials

The fence is mainly made of wood. This material is easily found in-game, even without using special tools. All you have to do is interact with your bare hands on the trees or use an ax on them to get the Logs of Wood.

I warn you, however, that the wooden fences could be weak, as they can easily be demolished with an ax. For this reason, it might be safer to make them with another stronger material, Nether Brick, which is less brittle, as it can only be demolished with a pickaxe.

In this case, you need to get some Netherrack, which is the material of which the soil of the Nether is made. Have you never been to this place? Do not worry. I told you how to access it in my guide on how to make the Nether portal.

Making a fence

Now that you have the basic resources, it’s time to work them, so as to build some fences. The procedure differs depending on the material you want to build this object with.

If you want to build a Wooden Fence, what you have to do is place the collected Wooden Logs inside a slot on the workbench or in the one of the Manufacturing section, located in the inventory. By doing so, these resources will automatically be converted into Wooden Planks.

After that, you need to get some sticks as well. These can be obtained by placing 2 units of Wooden Planks on a workbench or in the Fabrication section of the inventory. When you have all the necessary materials available, insert 4 units of Wooden Planks and 2 units of Sticks in a workbench, in order to generate 3 units of Fences.

If you want to craft a Nether Brick Fence instead, after you have obtained the Netherrack, place it inside a Furnace so that you can craft it and convert it into Nether Brick. You will also need Bricks of the Nether, items that are obtained by putting together 4 units of Brick of the Nether in a workbench.

Now, still inside the latter, add 4 units of Nether Brick and 2 units of Nether Brick, to make 6 units of Nether Brick Fence.

Create a fence in Minecraft

After you get the Fence units, what you need to do is place them on the ground in order to build a fence. Of course, the amount of this item to use varies based on how big you want to build it.

All you need to do is equip the fence units in a quick slot and place the first element on the ground. At this point, place another one next to it, so that a fence is created.

All you have to do is continue along the entire perimeter that makes up the fence you want to build, in order to complete the project. I warn you that, to access the fenced area, it is also important to build a gate.

You can easily build this object with the materials you already have available. All you have to do is put 4 units of staff and 2 units of wooden boards on a workbench.

Mod to make fences on Minecraft

If you don’t like the style of the default fences in Minecraft, you can build others with a different design by installing MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod. It is an add-on that provides different decorative elements for your shelter.

To use it, however, you must first install Minecraft Forge, which you can download for free from its website. It is another add-on that is meant to manage mods for this video game.

After viewing the Minecraft Forge homepage, press the Installer button to download the installation file to your PC. When the download is complete, double-click on the file you just downloaded to open it with the Java Platform. Press the OK button to complete the installation.

Now, go to the official website of MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod and download the same version compatible with Minecraft Forge, which you find in the Download section.

Once this is done, move the file you just downloaded to the mod folder, located in the path C: \ Users \ [name] \ AppData \ Roaming \ .minecraft. If you do not find the folder in question, create it manually, as I have explained to you in this guide.

OK, we’re almost there! Start Minecraft and press the  icon, which you find next to the Play button. Then select the Forge profile and press the Play button.

Now you just have to enter a world in Creative mode and select the MrCrayfish’s Furniture Mod tab, located in the inventory. You will find fences in the list of new items added by the mod.
