The Enchantment Table is used to enchant certain items using Experience Points. Items that can be enchanted include: Swords, Pickaxes, Shovels, Axes, Bows, Books, and Armor. Enchantment tables alone typically have upgrades ranging from two to seven experience levels. If the player is within a certain range, the book on the table will open, face the player, and flip pages every several seconds. As of Minecraft 1.8, Lapis Lazuli is required to make dye for enchantments.

The chance of getting a better enchantment can be increased by placing bookshelves around the table. Only Bookshelves that are two blocks away will add enchantments. When placed correctly, an animation of floating symbols moving into the book entity will occur. The text is written in the Standard Galactic Alphabet. The ideal position of Bookshelves is a square of 15 placed in a 5x5-block outline, with the Enchantment Table.

Trivia

  • According to the first image that Notch posted of the Enchantment Table, they were originally crafted with Cobblestone instead of Obsidian.
  • When crouching on the Enchantment Table, the edge can still be walked off of, due to its height not being a full block.
  • Enchantment Tables have the same blast resistance as obsidian.
  • The bottom of the table is an obsidian slab.
  • The highest level of enchantment possible is 30 (previously 50).
  • In 1.8 Enchantment Tables got a big update: one of the resulting enchantments can be seen, but one, two, or three lapis lazuli (depending on how much Xp it costs) must be paid to get the enchantment.
  • 5 diamonds are needed to craft this table without the help of villagers or looting.
