What is a Minecraft Fletching Table – and what does it do?
Now, you must have heard about a Minecraft fletching table – and whether you know the uses or not, let us tell you it is a special work station block that is used for archery or arrow production, or both. Their uses are very specific, as they are required to create neat and special designs in the game.
The main purpose of a Minecraft fletching table is to lend a rightful occupation to a villager who is unemployed and hasn’t chosen an occupation for himself, yet. As it is one of the profession blocks, found naturally originating in villages, it makes an unemployed villager become a fletcher. It serves as the workstation of a fletcher, and does not have any special functions yet. Mojang has let out a word of mouth that he has a special function in mind for a Minecraft fletching table – we’ll only have to wait and see!
Mostly decorative in nature, some gamers believe that a fletching table can be used to smelt 1.5 times. To elaborate, you can use it as a fuel within a furnace to smelt these items, if you are desperate to cook something! You can break a Minecraft fletching table, in many ways, using many tools, that is! But, the quickest and also perhaps, the easiest way to do so is using an axe – you’ll have the desired results in a matter of seconds!
Other functionality of the Minecraft fletching table also includes that you can use this otherwise decorative item in your inventory to customize your archery experience in the later stages of the game, so if you feel like it has no use to you right now, we suggest you hold on and see how it works out for you when you’ve proceeded a few other levels in the game.
