Materials needed to build a water elevator in Minecraft
- Buckets of water
Once you have found a suitable location, place glass in a square formation, leaving a 2×2 area in the middle.
Start building upwards with the glass until you have reached a height that you are okay with.
Go back down to the bottom and break 4 pieces of glass on any of the 4 sides. This is so that you have an entrance into the 2×2 area.
When you are in the 2×2 area, you can start building the water elevator. Place 2 signs on the glass to your left and place 2 signs on the glass to your right. Just above the signs, place a bucket of water. Above the water, place down another 4 signs and above the signs place down more water. Keep repeating this until you have reach a satisfactory height.
Once you have finished step 4, you can build a glass room on top of the elevator so that you can look all around your world. This is a great way to have a good look at everything you have built.
