In the game, you can store your valuables in a chest to keep them safe. Even though you can only craft one type of chest, there are actually two sizes. Let’s explore how to use both a chest and large chest.

Background

When you play the game, you will begin to fill your inventory with items that you’ve gathered. A chest can be used to store valuable items or items that you don’t currently need.

Each item stored in a chest is removed from your inventory. When you want to use that item, you will need to take it out of the chest and place it back into your inventory.

Required Materials

In Minecraft, these are the required materials if you wish to use a chest:

In the top of the Chest menu, there are 3 rows, each with 9 boxes. These are the 27 boxes that you can use to store items in your chest.

To put an item in your chest, you need to move items from your inventory into any of the top boxes in the Chest menu.

In this example, we have moved our 2 coal, 3 oak wood planks, 3 sticks, and 7 cobblestones into the chest. They will no longer be part of your inventory. To use these items, you will need to take them out of your chest and put them back in your inventory.

How to Use a Large Chest

In Minecraft, you can also use a large chest. This is an item that you can not craft, instead, a large chest is made by placing 2 chests side-by-side.

Let’s explore how to make a large chest by building on our example above. We currently have a chest in our shelter. Now we need to place another chest right next to it to make a large chest.
