Feast your eyes on a great mod that adds more functionality to the Stone Cutter(table saw) and the Smithing table, with some additional tangential changes as of R4.


Tools and Weapons can now be Balanced, Reinforced, Sharpened, and made Heavy.

Wooden Tools and Swords are not usable in the Smithing table.

Balancing a stone item can be done with clay.

Balancing an iron item can be done with an iron nugget.

Balancing a gold item can be done with a gold nugget.

Balancing a diamond item can be done with an emerald.

Reinforcement can be done with an iron bar.

Sharpening Stone, Gold or Iron items flint can be used.

Sharpening Diamond can be done with diamond.

After Sharpening an item it cant be upgraded further unless it is upgrading to netherite.

Making a Heavy Version of an item can be done with an ingot of the same material, only gold and iron axes and swords can be made heavy.

Heavy is incompatible with Balanced.

Like in vanilla netherite is applied last.


Sharpening increases damage by 1. (Only for Swords and Axes)

Heavy increases damage by 1.5, durability by 25%, and decreases swing speed by 30%. (Swords and Axes)

Balancing increases swing speed by 25% (Incompatible with Heavy and Reinforced)

Reinforcing increases mining speed by 50% and durability by 50%. (Picks, Shovels, and Hoes)


All logs can be crafted directly into chests, barrels, Boat if available, and 5 planks of its type.

All planks can be crafted into Workbenches, Ladders, Doors, Fences, Fence Gates, Pressure plates, slabs, stairs, trapdoors, bowls, sticks, and all vanilla wooden tools.


Adds new trades for the Farmer(hoes), Butcher(axes), Mason(pickaxes), ToolSmith(shovels), and WeaponSmith(swords) relating to the items added by the mod

Diamond and Netherite mod items do not have trades added in.


Changes to skeleton Spawning.

All skeletons now can spawn with bows or stone axes or stone swords.

Wither Skeletons, Strays, and regular Skeletons now have a chance to spawn in with a bow, sword, or axe when they spawn changing how you approach these enemies.

(I have plans to do similar things with other mobs but keep having trouble with them spawning with the items I want them to, like villagers having a leather tunic as it resembles their clothes) 

R1-R3 focuses on the main features of the mod being the tablesaw and smithing table

R4-R(n) focuses on the core essence of how I want the mod to change how you play Minecraft and how you think while playing to tie the features of the mod together and make a more cohesive playing experience than vanilla
