Minecraft has a plethora of items that can be used to create and decorate structures. From basic blocks like stone and diorite to blocks like terra cotta and concrete, there are various options available when designing any structure in Minecraft. However, redstone has always stood out as one of the most unique ways to do construction or other tasks in Minecraft.
Redstone ore is a rare mineral found up to level Y -57. When broken, it releases redstone dust, which is used in a variety of automated constructions and other gizmos in Minecraft due to its ability to transmit redstone signals when placed. In addition to mining, redstone rust can be obtained via various chests placed in unique structures throughout the Minecraft world and as a drop from witches.
Here are the best ways to use redstone efficiently in Minecraft.
The 5 best uses of redstone in Minecraft
5) Piston holder
Piston Doors are one of the easiest redstone constructions in Minecraft. They are activated by standing on a pressure plate or by using a button. Players will need sticky pistons for this build, which will require balls of slime from slimes. A BlenDigi YouTube tutorial can be found above.
4) Automatic grain farm
Auto grain farms are some of the most common builds in Minecraft. They allow a quick harvest of the grain. An efficient grain farm can be built using some dispensers and water. A tutorial from Danny Ashworth on YouTube can be found above.
3) Sugar cane farm
Sugar cane is one of the most important materials in the game as it is used to make paper, which is an ingredient in the enchanting process in Minecraft. An auto farm is a must in Minecraft. It can be built using observer blocks.

2) Storage sorting system
Players can spend a lot of time sorting their items into various chests and barrels in Minecraft, especially if one has a lot of items in their inventory or out of order. The automatic storage sorting system can automate the sorting of items by guiding each item to its designated storage box. A YouTube tutorial from Mysticat can be found above.
1) Automatic foundry
In Minecraft, players tend to spend a lot of time melting minerals and cooking food in ovens, smokers, and blast furnaces. The process takes time and no player likes to wait in any game. Automatic foundries can solve this situation.
Auto foundries require a lot of iron to build. For an example of production, 64 raw beef takes 48 seconds to cook in this “super foundry”. A Shulkercraft YouTube tutorial can be found above.
Redstone can prove to be one of the most efficient items in the game when used correctly. Although redstone contraptions take time to set up, they make life in Minecraft incredibly comfortable when up and running.
