A redstone sorting machine can not only cure a cluttered unmanageable Minecraft home, but make for an integral part of an efficient work space. With the redstone sorting machine, your items can arrive at the mere press of a button.
How to Create a Redstone Sorting Machine
There are several variations to sorting machines and while mine cart sorting machines used to be the prefered method, I have made this guide using water and dispensers. This is mainly because of the change in mine cart behavior that came with the 1.0 update, which limits some of what one can do with mine carts. Nonetheless, this sorting machine will certainly serve you much better than a cluttered mess of chests.
Step 1 Place Dispensers
Step 2 Build a Water Delivery Trench
Step 3 Build an Item Collector
Now you can collect your items at the press of a button!
