How to make a Shulker Box in Minecraft

Storage is made more convenient with Shulker Boxes.

Shulker Boxes are one of the most useful items for transportation and storage in Minecraft. They are similar to Chests, in that both storage units have 27 item slots. However, Shulker’s Box has one advantage that makes it more useful than Chests.

Where normal chests were destroyed, they dropped all the content stored in them. This is not the case with the Packing Box. Shulker Boxes will keep every item in it – even if it’s damaged – and can be retrieved and stored as 1 item slot in your Inventory. This means that you can carry 27x more items per 1 slot when you carry the Shulker Box, which is why it is so valuable to travel with.
