There may come a time where you will need to prioritize your privacy above all else in Minecraft. The last thing you want or need are griefers who can and will take advantage of your abode and make life more difficult for where you may store your items or base. This is where a secret door can come in handy so that locating such an important location isn’t easy. In this article, we shall go over how exactly you can build your own secret door from the ground up, and what you will need to make it in the first place.
Getting the ingredients and items to make what is required of this particular secret door will not be easy unless you are going to use console commands or creative mode. That being said, here is the list of items that you will need:
It’s for the best that you start on a clear flatland so that you are flexible with your build. This can give you good practice when you move onto more advanced forms of secret doors.
Make Two rows of sticky pistons that are three blocks high, but have four blocks of separation between them.
Next place stone blocks next to the pistons to act as the door on all levels.
Next, you will want to place Redstone torches at the foot of each pillar and a stone block in the middle of each. On that stone block place some red stone dust. This will activate your pistons.
Build a small 2x6 hole underneath the pistons. Place Redstone beneath it and widen each side by two blocks. This will lead to you extending the Redstone dust by placing more of it, as well as Redstone repeaters.
Cover the surface of the hole you have just created with grass blocks so that you may now place pressure plates on either side of the structure.
These will allow you to open up your new secret door.
To make it more secretive, place stone blocks all around the structure in a way that doesn’t impede its ability to open or close. With this done, you now officially have your own secret door.
