How to make a rotating wind or water mill in Minecraft?

Minecraft in creative or “survival” mode allows you to carry out large constructions that help you achieve the objectives you want (that is why it is necessary to learn to change from survival to creative mode ). Among these, making a rotating wind or water mill is one of the most essential works for those who dedicate themselves to the path of plantations or crops.

Before starting the tutorial, be sure to download the game from its official website , and update Minecraft to the latest version in Spanish , so that there is no confusion in materials and other things that will be displayed.

Base and starting structure to make a rotating wind or water mill

First you must build a base that supports the future mill, it will have a rectangular shape with 6 (six) oak wood blocks that function as scaffolding, separated every three wooden blocks. Inside, fill in the free space with simple wooden tiles.

In this way, the rectangle will be large enough to divide it into a left and a right quadrant, the latter being reserved for the warehouse area.

In the left quadrant, starting from the 4 (four) scaffolds that remained, raise the same number of pillars with a height of 15 (fifteen) oak wood blocks, counting the one that is already serving as initial support.

Counting every 5 (five) blocks corresponding to a pillar, you must build a horizontal beam with the same material for each side of the mill. The result will be 3 (three) separate floors. Counting from top to bottom 3 (three) blocks from the last beam, generate another series of them to each facade, so that the highest floor is now separated into an upper and lower part.

Finally, build a pillar that passes through the center of each of the facades to the last beam, so that they are divided into a left and right part.

How to shape the mill once its initial structure is finished?

To start, fill in the gaps with bark-free oak blocks to make a more eye-catching spinning wind or water mill . Place wooden stairs at the top corners without leaving any free and on them, raise oak pillars of 5 (five) blocks high and that are joined both at their upper and lower ends by a new beam on each side.

The outcome will be a new upper portion that you must divide into 2 (two) by building a pillar that passes through the center, similar to one of the steps described above. Next, place fir wood stairs until one sticks out on each side.

From the right and left, position the fir stairs so that you draw a triangle. You must do it on both the main facade and the rear, and then join them with the same material and finish the ceiling.

Fill the gaps with oak wood blocks inside to connect the roof to the rest of the building and cover the remaining voids in your mill with bark-free blocks.

Final steps to attach the blades to the mill

Pay attention to the center of the top of the mill on its front façade and build a beam of 7 (seven) oak wood blocks with fir wood blocks on each side of it at the point where it starts.

From there, both above and below the beam, place 2 (two) ladders guarded on each side by fir wood fences. Then repeat the initial procedure with the fir wood blocks.

Next, build diagonally and zigzag up and down, the blades of the mill using oak wood blocks with a length of 2 (two) blocks in each jump until you materialize the shape.

Make use of fir wood fences to highlight the edges of the blades, and then place ladders on the tips of the blades.

To finish the process of making a rotating wind or water mill, you can have quartz blocks to increase the aesthetic level of the blades. Distribute them to one side of the fences to give relief until one protrudes, being precisely in the last where you will cement a quartz staircase.

Additionally, add a layer of depth with quartz blocks outlining the inner edges. Uff! Comprehensive but invigorating, your grinder is ready to go. Now you can move on to other works such as making or building a stone bridge , or building an automatic fishing farm , remember that your imagination is the limit.
