Gather the necessary materials

Before I talk to you about how to make a TV on Minecraft, it is important to show you which materials and resources can be useful to you to face the realization of this project.

First, get some black wool blocks. You can get the lana using the shears on sheep that you find in the world of Minecraft. The black dye it is obtained, instead, from ink pouches, which you can receive when you defeat a squid. It will be enough to combine these two resources in a workbench to obtain black wool.

You are probably wondering why wool is used to build a television. The answer to your question lies in the fact that a TV screen is black and wool is one of the few materials you can get in this color, so you can use it in this project.

If you don't want to use wool, you can replace it with i black concrete blocks. To get this resource, in a bank gives lavoro insert 1 unit of ink pouch, 4 units of sand blocks e 4 units of gravel. By doing so, you will get gods black concrete dust blocks. After placing them, pour somewater above them, so as to transform me into black concrete blocks.

In addition to the resources listed above, you will need ballast of the material you want. These will serve as a support base for the TV. To get slabs of a specific material, such as dark oak, place 3 units of dark oak planks on three horizontal slots of a workbench.

Finally, if you want to simulate an audio system to be placed side by side with the TV, you can use i giradischi. The blocks of this object have a texture that resembles the coating of audio speakers. To create a giradischi, you need 8 units of wooden planks e 1 unit of diamond.

When you have recovered all the materials I mentioned in the previous paragraphs, you can proceed with the construction of a television to be placed inside your shelter. In this regard, continue reading with the tips and procedures that you will find in the next chapter.

Now that you know the resources to use to make a TV in Minecraft, it's time to move on to making this project. First, place your avatar in front of the wall where you want to build the TV. In my example, I used a size wall 8 x 5.

Once this is done, place 4 units of plates on the wall, so as to leave the half-block space between them and the floor. By doing so, you will have built a shelf attached to the wall, which will support the TV.

At this point, place i black wool blocks or black concrete on the newly created shelf. You will have to place 4 units of these black blocks on three horizontal lines, so as to give the illusion that it is a television screen.

Great, we're almost there! What you need to do now is place 3 units of turntable on both sides of the TV screen, in order to simulate an audio system, and that's it!
