You need to make a stone pickax. Not wood.

You put the iron ore into a furnace with fuel.

You first need to find the right kind of stone to make a stone axe then dig for iron

Where can you find cobblestone
Guest said: 9th Jun 2014 | REPORT
Make a pickaxe and dig in a stone wall, you will find cobblestone but ONLY with a pickaxe

Go to the edge of the Earth and dig down. After a little bit of digging (20-30 blocks) make a big area around yourself and you normally find a bunch of major ores.

If you want to make a furnace you need to find regular stone, for example in a mountain. Then you get a pick axe, a wooden one will do mine the regular stone and it will give you cobblestone. Collect the cobblestone. You will need 8 blocks. Now go to your crafting table and create your furnace!

You need to go to the edge of earth and dig down really deep. Be careful getting out of your hole, though.

Go to the edge of the map. Go all the way down to the bottom of the map till you get to obsidian (the black, white and gray block that you can't mine) and build 3 blocks up and dig all around. U can usually find ore.

Obsidian isn't the grey black and white stone, obsidian is the black one that only diamond pickaxe to brake. You use it to go to nether.
Guest said: 10th Jan 2014 | REPORT
Nothing worked for me! I dug all around and all I found was coal! ;(
Guest said: 26th Apr 2014 | REPORT
Grey black is bedrock and you need water and lava
To make obsidian
And you do need a diamond pickaxe
Guest said: 21st Mar 2015 | REPORT
obsidian is not just black it has some purple and pink spots

To get iron you need a stone pick axe.Keep on mining until you find iron ores.Mine the iron ores.Smelt them and you'll get iron ingots.Inyour crafting tavle you can make iron blocks with them or armor.I hope that helped you

Keep on mining until you find iron ores. Mine the iron ores... YOU DON'T SAY!? I'm having trouble finding the iron ores, can you be more specific? Like how far deep, until you hit a specific mineral? Those kinds of things.

I agree with you guys on both things. All I found was cobblestone( I just turned that into regular stone ) and you have to dig about 10 blocks deep. Remember to dig side to side and diagonal too because it might not always be in front of you.
I have only found it once on creative mode.

You wish! I only found 1 iron ore and it was under the water, about 22 blocks surrounded by sand.
Guest said: 8th Jun 2014 | REPORT
I had soooo much stuff and I got stuck under ground and lost all my stuff!
Guest said: 21st Mar 2015 | REPORT
noobs it is just impossible to say in exactly wich block is the iron ore, and stop saying experiences with iron ore and bad luck just be lucky and you will find some.

I think you have to get a stone pick axe and you have to dig 6 blocks down,then dig around there

Guest answered:
Added 26th Apr 2014, ID #623268
You all write words wrong

And also you need to dig down until your on stone and dig around 7 blocks deep
Then mine around where the hole you dug

All you gotta do is find a flat land and dig all the way down tillyou get to bedrock. Dig around you to see if there's anything there and if there isn't go back up.

Iron ore is what you need
Then you melt it down then you have a iron ingot

Or Just Look Off In Mines!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is no sure fire way to get anything, things TEND to spawn in certain places. I've found diamond ten blocks below sea level! The rare ores tend to be further down and the more commun ores closer to the surface. NOT ALWAYS!!!

Strip-mine in a spot, near the edge of the map, from 6-40 blocks down, do it in different spots.

You can optimize the ratio of effort-outcome by digging tunnels big enough for you to get through, each two blocks apart. Strip-mine the whole map if you want!!!

Maybe you should just try to mine,it takes a while but you'll eventually find some
