In Minecraft, a hopper is one of the most important items that you can have in your inventory. It is a block that can be used as a minecart delivery system. You can also use it to create automatic furnaces and even breweries. So, let us take a look at how you can craft hopper in Minecraft.
You can make a chest with eight wooden planks. The wooden planks need to be placed in the crafting table area. Just leave the middle grid empty. Make sure that you use plank and not logs for this process. A log can be easily turned into four planks by placing a single plank in the crafting area.
You can skip this step if you already have a chest.
Caves and underground areas are the best places to get iron ore. These look like stone and have beige flecks on them. Once you have your chest and iron, make the hopper using the recipe.
The next step is to create a crafting table with the help of four wooden planks. Now place the table and right-click on it to use it. You need to add the items in the crafting grid. Here's the order that needs to be followed for a 3x3 grid:
Once you have placed all the items in the crafting area with the correct pattern, your hopper will be ready in a few seconds and appear in the box to the right.
When your new Hopper is ready, you need to move it to your inventory
To combine a Minecart with a hopper, you need to use your newly made hopper from your inventory and place it directly above the Minecart in the crafting area. The outcome is called 'Minecart with hopper'. This item can travel like a Minecart and pick up things like a hopper. In addition, it can also move with a much faster speed than a normal minecart while passing over the powered rails.
