Step 3:  Build the Furnace by using 8 Cobblestone blocks in the Minecraft crafting menu.  Every block should be filled, except the middle one. This is how you craft the Furnace.

Step 4:  Turn Cobblestone into Stone with the Furnace. Use the coal and put it into the bottom of the furnace.  In the top put your Cobblestone.  Once you put both in the furnace, flames are burning and Cobblestone is turned into Stone.
