How to Make a Bowl?

First thing’s first, you need to obtain the materials that you’ll need to craft a bowl. Since you only need wood planks, you will want to hit the trees to chop them down. Chopping down trees will give you wood logs that you can change into planks. After collecting a few logs, place them in your crafting menu to convert them into wood planks.

Now that you have the planks, make a crafting table by putting four wood planks in your survival crafting menu that appears in your inventory. After getting a crafting table, place it down so that you can have a 3×3 grid of crafting and can start making new items.

Using the three wood planks, you can craft 4 bowls. After successfully crafting it, place it in your inventory.

Secondly, you can craft the Rabbit Stew as well if you want to. To craft it, you need to gather a few items. First up, you’ll need a carrot which can be found in various villages, chests in pillager outposts, shipwrecks, or dropped by certain zombies. You’ll also need to get a potato which can be obtained in the same way as the carrot.

Then, you’ll want to make a baked potato alongside your raw potato as well. To do so, place a potato in the furnace and add some fuel to cook it. After a while, it will be ready and you can collect it to get the baked potato. 

The fourth thing you need is the rabbit itself. Hunt a rabbit and gather its meat, and place it in a furnace with some fuel to cook it. Once it is cooked, place it alongside the other items and your bowl in the crafting menu as seen in the image above. This will give you the Rabbit Stew which you can use.
