Before the Minecraft 1.20 update was released, every bookshelf in the game was just for aesthetic purposes. This means that there was no option to store any of your books on the shelves. But the latest update has given players what they were looking for. You can now store Written, Enchanted, and Knowledge books on Chiseled Bookshelves. And as expected, you will not be able to find this bookshelf out in the open. You will need a recipe to craft it. This guide will show you how to make a Chiseled Bookshelf in Minecraft 1.20.
How to Make A Chiseled Bookshelf in Minecraft 1.20
You will need six Wooden Planks and 3 Wood Slabs to make a Chiseled Bookshelf in Minecraft 1.20. Go to the Crafting Table and place three planks on the top row and the remaining three on the bottom. Finally, you can then put the three slabs in the middle row. This is the recipe required to craft the Chiseled Bookshelf in Minecraft.
You can use any type of wood to make a Chiseled Bookshelf. No matter what type of wood you choose while on the Crafting Table, the Chiseled Bookshelf will still look the same. With that being said, how can you place books on your newly crafted bookshelf? Here is how.
