Here is a small guide on how to build a perfectly circular structure in Minecraft.

Roadmap to Building Perfectly Circular Structures

The first thing you should do before building a circle is determine its diameter. Diameter is the distance measured from the end of the circle through the farthest point on the other end. In Minecraft, building circles with an odd diameter is easier so that the single block can be the centre point of the structure.

For this guide, I will build a circle with a 17-block diameter, and the block in the middle can be the centre point. First, place 17 blocks down, and the ninth block can serve as the centre point for the circle.

From the centre block, place seven blocks on each side of the structure, making an ‘X’ or ‘+’ like shape.

Place two blocks on each side of the tips to make them a 5-block long, making them look like a ‘T’ on every side.

After placing the blocks, place two more blocks on the sides on the edge to finish the outer line of the circle.

Finish the corners by putting a mini ‘L’ of 3 blocks long on the outer side to complete the circle.

When you finish the circle, you can fill the middle part of the structure with more blocks to create a platform to build or stand on. You can use the platform as a base for building a structure or tower.
