  1. Whats the difference between a 'wooden slab' and an 'oak wood slab'?
    I have 2 stacks of oak slabs each has a different name...
    can you please enlighten me on this

  2. I believe one is the older version where there was only 1 wood.
  3. do you mean the crafting table only used 1 plank to make 1 slab?
  4. The "Wooden Slab" version is pre-1.2.5 and can be destoryed quicker using a pickaxe rather than a normal axe. It is also fireproof. I have some of these myself.

  11. Wooden slabs are just the slabs from when they would always be oak, maybe in a year we'll be like "what's the difference between a wooden pressure plate and an oak wooden pressure plate?" Back then there was a glitch with wood slabs that made them act like stone. So you mine them with a pickaxe and they are fire proof.

  13. When will your museum open up? :D
  14. This isn't really the place to talk about it, as it is a bit off topic, but probably will open up in April, no guarantees though!
