Trapdoors in Minecraft are merely fantastic and quite useful tools! Trapdoors look great in almost any building style, and the best thing is that mobs cannot break the trapdoors, even if you have set the game difficulty to hard. A trapdoor can be a solid or transparent block that can be used as an openable 1×1 barrier.
Trapdoors have been in the game since the Beta 1.6 version, which was released back in the year 2011. They were added along with the maps, dead bushes, and grass. Initially, the trapdoors only opened upwards, but later on, with the coming update, players could open the doors on the bottom side too! Also, the ability to climb them as players did with the ladder was added.
There are two types of trapdoors – Wooden trapdoors and Iron Trapdoors.

Requirements For Making A Trapdoor
The requirements depend upon what kind of Trapdoor you want to make. Several types of Trapdoors in Minecraft can be crafted out of wood types like oak, spruce, jungle, birch, acacia, crimson, warped, dark oak. If you want to make Iron trapdoors, then you will need 4 pieces of Iron ingots.
- Wooden trapdoor requirements: 6 Wooden Planks
- Iron Trapdoor Requirements: 4 Iron Ingots
How To Make A Wooden Trapdoor In Minecraft?
1. Finding The Required Materials
If you need a wooden trapdoor, you will need 6 planks of any wood type listed in the requirements above. If you want an iron trapdoor, you will need 4 Iron Ingots. First, we will look at how to craft a Wooden Trapdoor, and then we will see the recipe for making the Iron trapdoor.
2. Crafting The Trapdoor
Once you have collected the required materials, the next step is crafting the trapdoor. Now, place the 3 out of 6 wooden planks in the middle row (1 in each square) and then place the remaining 3 planks in the last row the same way you did in the middle row.
Transfer the output, which will be 2 trapdoors, to your inventory. After that, we will see how to place the trapdoor in the game.
3. Placing the Trapdoor
To place the trapdoor, put it on the side of the solid block. This is the only way you can place a trapdoor in Minecraft. Later on, you can build around it the structure of your choice using the other blocks.
4. Opening and closing the Trapdoor.
To open or close a trapdoor, right-click on it if you are using a PC and if you play on a console, press the button equivalent of the right-click on the mouse, simple as that!
How To Make An Iron Trapdoor In Minecraft?
1. Collecting The Requirements
To make an Iron trapdoor in Minecraft, you will need 4 Iron Ingots. You can get Iron Ingots by smelting the iron ore in a furnace or a blast furnace. However, Iron Ingots can also be found in the temples, chests, and dungeons. Iron golems drop 3-5 Iron Ingots when they die.
2. Crafting The Iron Trapdoor
Open the crafting menu or table and place 2 Iron Ingots in the first two blocks each (horizontally). Then similarly, place the remaining 2 Iron Ingots in the second/middle row. Place them in the first two boxes of the second row like you did with the first row.
Once you see a trapdoor on the right-hand side of the crafting table, move it to your inventory. Simple as that!
Advantages of having iron trapdoor instead of the wooden ones:
- Iron trapdoors are more potent than wooden trapdoors.
- Redstone pulse can only open iron trap doors, unlike the wooden trapdoors that can be opened simply by right-clicking.
Congratulations! Now you have acquired the wisdom of crafting the trapdoors in Minecraft. These trapdoors also make useful decorative items if used wisely. Like, a closed trapdoor on the top of a furnace makes it look like a hob on the top of a stove. Some dirt surrounded by open trapdoors makes a great flowerpot.
