Minecraft Shower

Due to some comments, I am remaking this instructable, I hope this one is more clear and easier to understand. I have also taken screenshots of the project rather than pictures from my phone. So, here we go.

Step 1: Base

Dig a 4x3 rectangle. Now dig those same dimensions down one more so it looks like the 2-block-deep hole in the picture. Now, using your choice of materials, fill the bottom of the hole. Now, fill the layer above the one you just placed down but leave a hole like in the last picture.

Step 2: Walls

Now, build a wall 5 blocks up on the back portion of the shower (see picture 1). Do the same for the other two walls like in pictures 2 and 3.

Step 3: Roof

Now fill the roof in. Add in two blocks so that there is an indent in the roof that will be used later.

Step 4: The Piston

Punch out a hole on either side of the wall. It should be 3 blocks up from the floor, or one block taller than your character. Now put the piston in the hole and make sure it is facing in.

Step 5: The Water

That indent you created in the last step will be used to place the water
in. Put it up there and watch it flow down. There will be no current due to the hole you created in step 1.

Step 6: Lever

Put the lever right next to the piston. Now you can control the water flow. Simple as that.

Step 7: Door

When you stand back from your project, you will notice that there are 3 blocks left in the opening. Fill in the top block and place a door into the remaining two.

Step 8: Finished Product

Now you have a shower in which you can control the flow to. I hope this is better than it was before and that it is easier to understand. I love hearing from you guys so keep commenting :)

    so I followed the directions and when I pulled the lever the water started flooding. To fix that problem I added around that hole on the roof. Now it works great!

    I just built this and it flooded my house...Thanks man :(

    Ok.I feel really stupid.When I clicked the lever,the water spread out a little bit and destroyed the lever so I had to delete the water.

    It was still a really cool Minecraft Shower.

    No need to feel stupid, that happened to me a couple times as I was creating the shower design. Should be an easy fix but I haven't played, I mean truly played, Minecraft in a long time and haven't updated it so maybe this design doesn't work anymore. But anyways, I am glad you liked it, thank you for the feedback.

    Okay, here's a suggestion:
    Instead of taking pictures of your screen, press F2 inside Minecraft instead. That will save a screenshot in the .minecraft folder. It will make the pictures turn out a lot nicer!
