Step 1: What You Need

40 building blocks 20 pieces of redstone 6 repeaters 12 sticky pistons And one lever

Step 2: Placing the Pistons

Make a tower of two pistons both facing the same way. Then make another two piston tower right next to it facing the same way. Then put another two piston tower directly infornt of the tower in the back. Make sure it is facing towards the front. It will form a v shape then do the same thing two blocks away facing in towards the first v. It will look like the picture.

Step 3: Adding Blocks

Put a tower of two blocks inside the v shape of both sides then put another tier of two blocks in front of them after that put a roof on the structure it will look like the pictures.

Step 4: Adding Blocks Continued

Put two blocks diagonal to each other on both sides' pistons so the bottom block is closer to the front. That is important it will look like the pictures.

If you go ontop of the structure you will see a 2 by 6 rectangle with a 1by 4 rectangle next to it. Put a repeater on the each of the blocks second to the end of the 2 by 6 rectangle the once towards the back should have 4 ticks. Full the rest of the rectangle with red stone it will look like the picture.

    I like it, but it's a bit complex.

    Also, use screenshots next time, much clearer imaging
