Today were going to learn how to make an awesome
TRAP DOOR to protect your base!!!
Step 1: Protect Your Awsome Base
So you built your very first Minecraft base only to have it destroyed by some guy with some TNT. Now if only you had read this Instructable that could have been prevented. So here we go, how to keep your base safe with a few easy steps.
Step 2: Make Room
Now first things first you are going to want to hollow out your entrance a little, but it is good to start with a 2x2 hallway and then hollow it out from there.
Step 3: Wiring It All Up
Now you want make sure you have a pressure plate down and place some of your Redstone down in a line working its way up to two parallel pistons (make sure there sticky pistons) and attach two blocks of stone to them. After doing that step on the pressure plate to make sure that it works.
Step 4: Reapeat Step Three
Now repeat step three on the opposite side of the hallway.
Step 5: FINALLY
Now the last thing you want to do is to disguise it so whoever tries to intrude is unaware of the trap. Just cover all the blocks you can without destroying your Redstone as that would sever the connection between the pressure plate and the sticky piston. Also consider changing the pressure plates to math their surroundings better.
Step 6: All Done
Now have no fear of intruders as you have made it to the end of this instruction and will be well protected against all foes.
