How do I make a piston door?

A Piston door in my view is a secret door that we can build in Minecraft and no one except us can find.

Do you want to know how to make piston door in Minecraft?

Firstly, gather all the items :-

If you want to make a piston door then you need to have the right materials to do it.

Sticky piston :- It is the primary component of a piston door. If you want to make it or want to know about it, then scroll up a little to learn more.

Red stone:- It is very important to have red stones because we are going to use it for transporting the red stone signal to make the piston functional.

Lever :- Next is the lever, and it is needed to make the sticky piston work. You must provide it energy and the lever is going to do exactly that.

Desired blocks:- You have to gather some blocks also, related to your biome (mesa biomes – terracotta, desert biomes – sand, etc.).

And now you are all set and good to go:

The first step is to find a place where you are going to do it. Just look for a secluded place away from high-traffic areas, and you should be good.

Now clear the place a little bit so that you can place the piston (l×b = 6×2 blocks).

Place the sticky piston as shown in the picture (one on top of another) and make sure pistons are in the same manner as in the picture.

Now place the desired block on the piston but make sure the block is completely connected with the piston.

Design your secret house. The one shown in the picture is just a sample – you can do a lot better than that.

Apply your creativity and hide your base now. I know you can do better than the picture here, so use your imagination.

Apply your creativity and hide your base now. I know you can do better than the picture here, so use your imagination.

Place a lever at a place where no one can find it (you can also hide it with a block) and turn it on.

Note:- When you turn the lever on, the piston will close the door and your base now is nowhere and after turning it off, it will open the secret house and get the secret door back to existence.

And we have done it!
