NOTE: Redstone may be found near lava so be careful when to start to dig.

When you got one piece of Redstone and four iron ore blocks, smelt this ore into four iron ingots with the furnace. Then on your table of crafts, you need to put four ingots in four spaces adjacent to the block’s center. Now you have to place Redstone dust there.

When you got all your materials so it means that you have finally crafted your map. Now you need to put the compass in the center slot of the 3×3 area of the crafting table and insert a piece of paper in each of the other nine slots.
