To get this achievement you will need to have a furnace, and at least three blocks of wood from a tree. (any wood)
Make a furnace with 8 pieces of cobblestone and place it. Go into the furnace and put a single block of wood in the slot and the fuel slot. Once the wood in the top slot is smelted into charcoal, place the charcoal into the fuel slot and place your last block of wood into the top slot to make more charcoal. This should pop your achievement.
