  • Making concrete from concrete powder:
      • Place a block of concrete powder on the ground
      • While holding a water bucket in your hand, right-click on the concrete powder.
      • There you go!!! As soon as the concrete powder will come in contact with water it will get converted into a concrete block.
      • You can mine it further using any pickaxe to acquire it. Make sure not to mine it with any other tool or bare hands. otherwise, it’ll not drop anything.
  • You can make this process faster by simply placing too many concrete powder with flowing water passing through each block converting them into concrete powder. For more ease, you can use the nearest large water source like a river or ocean. Start by placing concrete powder near riverbanks or ocean beach on contact with water to convert them into concrete blocks easily.
  • You can also make your build using concrete powder and then you can flow the water over your build to convert all those concrete powder into concrete blocks.
  • You can also go beyond the limits by making complicated Redstone contraption to make an automatic concrete maker.
