Recreate vanilla features in blocks

I am wondering if this is in MCreator and if it's not it should be. I am wondering if there is a way to recreate a vanilla feature in MCreator without needing to put all the textures and stuff so there's a second crafting table variant or something, Let's say for example the crafting table, how would I go about making my own crafting table version in MCreator.

A lot of the Minecraft code, textures, resources, etc; are copyrighted. (That's probably why MCreator uses its own textures for items in its UI, instead of just using the vanilla ones.) While it would definitely be nice if you could use Vanilla stuff as templates, I'm not sure if that'd really be a possibility. (And using tools like MCAssets to access vanilla sounds/textures/data files, and the wiki for info on blocks and stuff, it usually doesn't take too long to recreate basic vanilla elements.)

For more complicated stuff, (say, recreating entity behaviors), it can be a bit more challenging. You can make similar procedures, or if you're more java savy, use custom code elements to reference vanilla procedures, but that's obviously a bit more complicated and likely to cause build errors.

It sort of depends on what, specifically, you want to replicate?
