Assuming that sticks are free and Wood cost around $1.60 a piece, Cobblestone costs $15.10 a square foot, Iron costs $37.20 an Ingot, Gold costs $999.30 an Ingot, and Diamonds cost around $3500 for a decent diamond. This is how much Minecraft tools would cost to make.

Wooden Pickaxe:
1.60 x 3 = 4.80
A Wooden Pickaxe would cost $4.80 to make.

Wooden Axe:
1.60 x 3 = 4.80
A Wooden Axe would cost $4.80 to make.

Wooden Sword:
1.60 x 2 = 3.20
A Wooden Sword would cost $3.20 to make.

Stone Pickaxe:
15.10 x 3 = 45.30
A Stone Pickaxe would cost $45.30 to make.

Stone Axe:
15.10 x 3 = 45.30
A Stone Axe would cost $45.30 to make.

Stone Sword:
15.10 x 2 = 30.20
A Stone Sword would cost $30.20 to make.


Iron Pickaxe:
37.20 x 3 = 111.60
A Iron Pickaxe would cost $111.60 to make.


Iron Axe:
37.20 x 3 = 111.60
A Iron Axe would cost $111.60 to make.

Iron Sword:
37.20 x 2 = 74.40
A Iron Sword would cost $74.40 to make.

Gold Pickaxe:
999.30 x 3 = 2997.90
A Gold Pickaxe would cost $2997.90 to make.

Gold Axe:
999.30 x 3 = 2997.90
A Gold Axe would cost $2997.90 to make.

Gold Sword:
999.30 x 2 = 1998.60
A Gold Sword would cost $1998.60 to make.

Diamond Pickaxe:
3500 x 3 = 10500
A Diamond Pickaxe would cost $10500 to make.

Diamond Axe:
3500 x 3 = 10500
A Diamond Axe would cost $10500 to make.

Diamond Sword:
3500 x 2 = 7000
A Diamond Sword would cost $7000 to make.

If you want more of this give it a Diamond!

But then again the x2 x3 etc is un realistic because if you compare it to real life you could chapen it and use less resources

This would be an interesting blog if your numbers where correct.
All of the prices are based off of incorect figures. You have to remember 1 ingot is 1/9 of a meter. Also, stuff like cobblestone would be 3 meters of cobblestone put into a pickaxe, causing a way pricer tool.

Like in my comment, you could calculate a stick's mass. 2m³ of wood = 4 sticks. 2/4 = 0,5. A stick is as heavy as a slab.

Surprisingly inaccurate. You didnt take into account the size of one, say plank of wood for example. Could you not make a pickaxe from a large plank of wood for a fraction of the cost?
Not to mention a lot of the materials can vary in price depending on where you buy it from, and who the seller is.
We also have to assume you're using minecraft's representation of these materials, which blocks (for wood and cobblestone) are a meter^3 which is incredibly unrealistic to purchase in real life, let alone make a tool out of this.

If you want REAL representation of minecraft costs in real life, the closest there is would be The Game Theorist's video about how much diamond armor would cost in real life.

There are a few other things you would really have to consider if you were making these in real life - the amount of material actually needed for the tools, as opposed to the drastically incorrect proportions of Minecraft, for instance. You also would have to consider the cost of equipment to forge weapons of metal, the cost of operating and maintaining such equipment, the other tools you need in real life to forge a sword such as a hammer, anvil, etc. 

Can we get links to the places you found each of these prices?

Also, where are you buying quality wood at $1.60 a cubic foot/meter? I want in!

I totally wish I could get that good of a deal on gold and diamond aswell. Just think of having a gold bar 26 kilograms of gold for just 1000 dollars! 26 kilograms (26000 grams) With gold costing $28.94 per gram would cost $752,440. Sorry to break it to you, but your number is so far off it is not even funny.

Where did you get these numbers from?

By the way, I got the weight of gold by simply taking the cubic meter weight and deviding it by 9 to get what I did.
20th diamond! Good job! The math made my head fuzzy doe. O.o

This is incorrect. You don't measure them in squarefoot (I have no idea how long a foot is) You have to take it in cubic meters. One ingot is 0,111m³. A pickaxe needs 1/3m³ iron (wich is too much for a normal tool) Also, you could calculate the mass of a stick. 2m³ of wood = 4 sticks. This means one stick is 1/2m³.

It is a joke because you where talking in "Hard to understand" terms but they totally made sence to me.

If you know what a cubic meter (m³) is, it won't be hard to understand :P

No? This is just the truth. It would be more accurate if I'd calculate the weight with rho of the iron and the wood (+ thinking about what kind of wood has how much weight.)

Smart man! Here's a diamond for all your troubles ;) Don't spend it all on one tool! Hahah XD

what is this mathematical sorcery
have a diamond because maths is a majestical force that I don't understand but it looks legit so why not
