One of the most versatile blocks in Minecraft to build with is concrete. However, if your entire build is 80% concrete, it can be tedious to turn concrete powder into concrete. If you’ve ever seen an experienced Minecraft player speed through this process in vanilla Minecraft, then you know it's possible to improve this tedious work.

While you could build a redstone machine to automatically create concrete, this method is simple, and can be used on any vanilla or non-modded world! Below is a guide on how to cut your concrete conversion time in half. Keep in mind, this trick only works in the Java Edition of Minecraft.

Find somewhere in your world that you can dig. Mine out a 1x2 space and place down a water source on the farthest spot from you. The space closest to you is the one where you’ll place the concrete powder later in this guide.

There are two ways to do this. The first is to click and drop the concrete powder into the offhand slot. The other option works if concrete powder is in the hotbar. Simply scroll so that the concrete powder is in the right hand, then press the F key.

Have you ever wanted Minecraft trees to look less blocky, but don’t want to install multiple mods to do so? What about seeing the water animated and clear?
