First Appearance

Update 0.1.0

A Slab is a Block that takes up the space of half a block. Placing two slabs on one another will form a full block. They were added in Update 0.1.0.

Types

The different variants of Slabs and the respective versions they were added in:

Obtaining

Slabs can be obtained by Crafting them in a Crafting Table.

In addition to being Crafted;

  • Stone Slabs can be found in Village blacksmiths and butchers.
  • Sandstone Slabs can be found in Desert Villages, Desert Temples, and Desert Wells.
  • Spruce Slabs act as tabletops in the interior of Igloos.

Crafting

Usage

All Slabs can mainly be used for decoration. They can also be used as Crafting ingredients; most Slabs can be used to Craft their Chiseled forms of their respective Block type. Also, all Wooden Slabs can be used to Craft Daylight Sensors.

Trivia

  • Before Update 0.13.0, the Stonecutter was used to craft the Stone variants.
  • Mobs cannot spawn on slabs.
  • Slabs are also called Half Slabs or Half Blocks.
  • Slabs are a little smaller than End Portal Frames.
  • The Nether Brick Slab's texture was brightened after Update 0.14.2.
  • Stone Slabs are found naturally on Blacksmith roofs, and the counters in Butcher shops in Villages.
  • If a block is placed on top of a Slab, it will appear to be floating.
  • Placing Slabs under Water will create an Airlock.
  • As of Update 0.11.0, the Player can use Andesite, Diorite, or Granite to make Stone Slabs.
  • Before Update 0.14.0, if a Creeper exploded on a slab, it would destroy nothing but the slab.
  • Light can pass through slabs, meaning if the Player puts Torches or Glowstone underneath, there will still be light.
  • Two different slabs will not stack; for instance, a Stone Slab cannot be placed directly on a Cobblestone Slab, and when placed the Stone Slab will appear to be floating.
  • Putting slabs over ice, or packed ice will have no affact and the player will still slip.
  • Bug: There is a bug that causes mobs to spin in circles when they walk over a slab.
  • When two slabs of the same type are placed on top of each other, they will form a full block of whatever the slab is made out of.
    • However, when broken, it will not drop the block.
