Slabs are half-blocks that allow the player to walk onto them from a full block without jumping. They are crafted with 3 of their material arranged in a row in a Crafting Table, which makes 6 slabs. Two slabs placed on top of each other will form a full block; however, when mined, it will drop two slabs again. This is found in blacksmith shops and butcher shops in Villages.


In Sandstone and Nether Quartz, two slabs placed on top of each other in a crafting grid make a chiseled block.


  • Until 1.6.1, sprinting up a slab would stop sprinting. Now the player only stops sprinting if they step off and on immediately again. This indicates "tripping."
