In Minecraft, a time comes when your inventory space is full and you don’t want to drop any item from your inventory.
For this purpose, a chest is the best option to store inventory items that you don’t need at the time or they are so rare that you don’t want to lose them so you keep them in a chest which is safe at your home. A single chest has 27 slots to store items.
This article explains the easiest way to craft a chest with screen shoots and a step-by-step guide.
