Step 5

Create a trail of redstone dust that rises up, using terracotta blocks to highlight them. Use this redstone dust trail to create a platform three blocks below the top of the gravel blocks you created. At the foot of the platform, install four more redstone repeaters to increase the opening radius.

Step 6

To the right of the relays and slightly ahead and raised, a block was created with a trail of redstone dust, on the side of which is a redstone torch, and on top is redstone dust. Build a block on top of this footprint to make it float, and make sure this terracotta block is a different color than the ones you’ve been using up to this point. This will be your first button, in front of which you will place the first stone button.

Step 7

Now let’s start creating the top part. Construction of stone blocks on top of the fence. On the leftmost stone block, build three more on top of it, but then destroy the bottom two to make the top one float. Instead, replace the missing two blocks with two pistons. Continue this process until the pistons have passed through the stone structure.

Step 8

Build another terracotta block of a different color on top of the block with the button on it, and then place another stone button on that block. After that place a redstone torch on top of this new block and then another block on top of it. Place another redstone torch on this block and then build another platform in front of your top switch with a trail of redstone dust following it. Create another block platform on top of the one you just built with another redstone dust trail on it. Your gate should now work.

Alternatively, using the similar designs below, by pressing the bottom button, you can activate the pistons at the bottom push up, opening the gate.
