A few years ago before all of the Minecraft pixel builds took off and before I really started posting to my YouTube channel I had made my daughter wooden Pixel Pickaxe and posted it on Reddit, It was by far the most popular thing I Have posted on Reddit to date, and so I decided to rebuild it, but this time as a two-part series I will also be making a Pixel Sword that you can see here on YouTube.

The process is rather simple but time-consuming with the number of individual glue-ups.

I chose two similar kinds of wood like Oak and Maple for the blade and the inside of the handle. Then a contrasting wood like Walnut for the handle.

The size and scale of the Pickaxe were not overly important, but I did end up creating 20mm cubes, so no matter what size you choose, do some rough drawings to scale and make sure that you end up with a size that you like. The Pickaxe that I built was 12 squares tall.

The original post over here on Reddit, and if you haven’t already check out the Sword build!

Success! You're on the list.
