it's quite hard to find resources online on how to craft items on minecraft, I decided to post a list in here.
How to craft tools, items, weapons, food in mine craft "Mine Craft crafting guide":
Minecraft crafting Wiki
Minecraft crafting guide
Beginner guide and basics of Minecraft:
Minecraft basics by Minepedia
Minecraft Starter guide
Those were the link that cough my eye, but it's quite a smart game that shows the creativity mixed with retro gaming style, as a web designer I love simplicity, and I love minecraft :)
