Slabs are highly blast resistant half blocks used for building that generate naturally in Strongholds and Villages and are crafted in sixes with any of 8 different materials by making a horizontal line of 3 full blocks of the material being used in a Crafting Table. Slabs of the same type can be stacked to make full blocks, which sometimes look the same as the regular block, but sometimes look different.

History

  • Stone slabs were introduced to the game on October 24, 2009, in Survival Test 0.26.
  • Sandstone, Wood, and Cobblestone slabs were added in the Beta 1.3 update on February 22, 2011.
  • Stone Brick and Brick slabs were added in the Beta 1.8 update on September 15, 2011.
  • Red Sandstone slabs were added in Minecraft 1.8 update (Snapshot 14w32a, August 6, 2014).

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that sneaking lowers players' eye level to 1.5 blocks high, doing so does not allow the player to walk over a single slab with one block of air above it.
  • Back in the beta version, Notch made a test on Dirt Slabs. These were never added in the game.
  • Unless Water is flowing directly down on a Slab, a slab will block water flow regardless of the space above it.
  • Before 1.3.2 Wooden Slabs' ID was a variant of Stone Slabs', so you needed a pickaxe to break wooden slabs. However, this still occurs on the Pocket Edition.
  • In the Joke Update Minecraft 2.0, a new slab known as the Etho Slab was added. The name was most likely a reference to a youtuber named EthosLab. This slab version of TNT would have a larger blast and if a player is close enough, will spawn an anvil above them.
  • The bottom of Ender Crystals appear to be Bedrock Slabs.
