How to Make a Chair in Minecraft – 5 Simple Steps to Follow

A few months back, I was wondering how to make a chair on Minecraft that actually works. I mean, you can sit on it and do things that normally seem impossible in the game. So, I kept digging, and finally, I have found a way to make a chair on Minecraft that actually works.

It is very easy to make a chair in Minecraft. Even if you have built one yourself, you might be wondering how I can sit on it and do stuff like eating rice or cookies while sitting on the chair you made. By following the steps below, you can create a fully working chair in Minecraft just within 5 minutes.

Step 1: Plan It

Before you get started, you need to determine where you want to build a chair and what its size is going to be. You can build a small and simple chair or a large one which will have more space.

Also, You will have to figure out where you want to make this chair. Making a chair inside a room is more preferable as it looks nice to have some furniture inside the room.

Once you have figured these things out, move to the next step.

Step 2: Start Designing The Chair

To design the chair, at first, you have to place a wooden slab on the floor. If you are playing Minecraft for a while, you must know how to do it.

Now just put a door behind the slab that you placed earlier. The door will work as the basis and backrest of the chair. The base design is done.

Step 3: Put A Banner On It

After you are done putting the slab on the ground and the door on the back, it is time to put a banner on it to cover the door, and it will make your chair look better.

Before you put the banner, make sure you sneak before placing it. For sneaking, all you have to do is click shift.

So, before putting the banner on the chair backrest properly, you have to click the shift button and sneak. Then put the banner.

You have already made your first chair. Now, this looks like a good chair. Now you can do some other stuff to make it even better.

Step 3: Add The Armrests

This step is optional. It will make your chair look unique and more realistic. Adding arms to your chair is actually very simple. You can do it in seconds.

To add armrests to your chair, all you have to do is placing signs. Place signs on both sides of the chair, and you are done with this step.

Now you have made a chair with a tall back. However, if you want to make a short and simple chair, you can just use a stair and signs on the sides, and your simple and small back chair will be ready within a few seconds.

Step 4: Place The Command-Block on The Chair

To make this step work, we will need to use some red engineer’s commands. 

In this step, you have to open the command block by typing, /give your name command_block.

This will give you a command block in your inventory with arrow marks on it. I have to say the block looks funny to me. I don’t know why.

Anyways, now, after you have the block, place it on the top of the chair.

Step 4: Enter The Command To Make it Work

After placing the command block on the top of the chair, you will have to enter a particular command. I will give you an image of the command:

You can either type it or find it easily. Just Google “Red engineer Working Chair Command” and visit their website to copy the code. Copy it on your keyboard with Command + C (on Mac), Control + C (on Windows), and go to Minecraft, do a right-click on the command block and paste the code pressing command + V (on Mac), Control + V (on Windows).

Then press the Needs Redstone, and it will be checked in to Always active. Keep it that way and just click done.

Step 5: Break The Command Block And Sit On The Chair

After you are done with the coding thing, now you will need to break the command block that you have left on the top of your chair.

Now, follow the directions below to use the chair:

  • To sit on the Chair: Right-click on the chair
  • Get up from the chair: Press shift.
