Crafting TNT

Step 1: Get Materials to Craft Minecraft TNT

Cardboard tubes -9 tubes

Wick - 6 inches

Rock Hard

Red Spray paint


Paper tape

Flash powder -10 grams

Lighter to light wick

Black Marker

Step 2: Attach Cardboard

Glue cardboard tubes together by attaching them side by side with a thin line of glue. Let glue dry.

Step 3: Using Glue and Paint

After glue has dried paint the cardboard tubes with red paint.

Step 4: Sides and Bottom of TNT

When the paint has completely dried mix a small amount of rock hard with water. Fill the bottom of the middle tube 1/4" from bottom to make a plug for your flashpowder.

Turn the tubes to the top side. Take the flashpowder (10grams) and pour into middle tube with plug in bottom.

Insert wick into middle tube.

Step 5: Top of TNT

Mix enough Rock Hard to plug each tube at the top. Make sure to keep wick straight in middle tube as it dries.

Step 6: Label Your TNT

Using the tape (with some help) wrap around TNT once. Write the letters T-N-T using the black marker.

Step 7: Detonate Crafted TNT

With adult supervision while at a safe distance of at least 50 feet away from other people, buildings, etc., detonate TNT by lighting the wick.

Step 8: Start Mining

Collect your ores.

<p>that's soooooooooooooooooo coooooooooooool!</p>
<p>it so coooooooool</p>
Well this is how it worked for me. This project was a homeschool math lesson in weights and measuring and a history on fireworks.
<p>im a kid how to covince your parents to let me make it</p>
<p>You could split the wick to the other tubes of the TNT just like this</p>
Great idea!! I could try that on my next project. Since I only used 10grams in the middle tube, and I believe the safe limit is 50 grams per bomb in a rural area, I could do 10 grams in 5 tubes and split the wick like you suggested. Thanks.
<p>Just don't blow yourself and the world.</p>
Is there someway of posting this video so we could see?
Did it really blow up? Or just &quot;flash&quot;?
The TNT did blow up. I have the video but wasn't sure I could add it to my Instructable.
