    That's actually kind of a cool idea, not going to lie. Puzzle map makers would love this. Voted.

    What crafting recipe would you propose? A ring of 8 iron ingots seems to be the most obvious, perhaps with a tripwire or piece of redstone dust in the center.

    Really brilliant idea!  Not too many ideas this necessary come out.

    Maybe it holds more items?

    @StarKittychu nah, it doesn't have to hold more items. It could have a double chest variant, yes, but the clever thing about this idea is using redstone to bring in a locked chest into Minecraft.

    I'm sorry. I just thought "because it's iron, and more expensive, it could hold more!"

    @StarKittychu that's ok.  There's nothing bad with that assumption. :)

    Tal vez que solo lo pueda abrir el creador del cofre, que esté creado con los 7 lingotes de hierro 1 cable trampa en el centro y 1 de piedra rojiza en la zona inferior media, teniendo la capacidad base de 9×4, incluso; uno de oro con capacidad base de 9×5 y uno de diamante con capacidad base de 9×6, con la capacidad de unificar dos.
    Probablemente sería mas del tipo de variación del cofre del end.

    I think when theres a redstone signal the Chest opens automatically to the opened position (but you still need to right click it to access it)

    There would also be a question: What happens to the items if you break the chest?

    Do they just fall on the ground? Or do they disappear forever? 

    And would the chest survive an explosion? I think it should.

    I loved this idea, but please correct the grammar. I'll make your work easier, just copy paste this part:

    This chest would only open if a redstone signal is sent to it. It would be a great addition for everyone but mainly for map creators for puzzles.

    1 Redstone Chest + 8 Iron Ingots

    I'd say it would be cool as, but I recommend that you would have to get some sort of key to open it such as an iron, gold and or diamond, and depending on what kind of chest you make like an iron, gold or diamond, the key would automatically be made with it

    I love it. It's simple, it follows the logical mechanics of existing redstone blocks (iron doors), and maybe could even be harder to break than a regular chest (by mining or explosives).

    it can also be used for bigger storage since its made of a better material like how zombies cant break iron doors (or can they i forgot)

    I prefer the key idea people have suggested. Or make it a combination lock, or something. There's plenty of times it would be nice to be able to protect your valuables on a multiplayer server without the use of plugins.

    And it’s like much huger than a double chest!!

    Another comment asked what happens is someone were to break the chest. Perhaps it should act as an ender chest as long as both sides are powered. I also think it should be crafted with 8 iron ingots.

    I came here expecting (and wishing for) a chest variant with a larger storage space.

    However, I was positively surprised. I really want this. Now I really want this added into the game!

    I was just thinking of something like this!

    Small detail, but I was imagining that it would open when given a redstone signal, which would then allow the player to access it, rather than a redstone signal allowing the player to open it.

    Also it was just pointed out to me that this doesn't necessarily have to be a chest, it could instead be some kind of safe. Just something to think about. (that would probably take away the option of having this as a double chest though, so I dunno)
