Do you want to execute a pesky deserving player undefined ... with undefined style??




If so, the Guillotine is the execution machine for you!! undefined



Here I will show you how to make one!



First are the Supplies you will need:

  • A Bunch of wooden blocks, about ~ 20 - 30 (if it works with other blocks, let me know!)
  • 4 Sticky Pistons
  • 10 Redstone torches
  • 4 Slabs
  • About ~ 8 - 15 Redstone
  • 1 Lever
  • 1 Staircase
  • 1 Iron Block (Or Other Suffocating Non-Falling Block)
  • 1 Unlucky Victim

Optional:

  • 1 Hopper
  • About ~ 4 - 64 Steve Heads


Now ... Let's get started ... undefined



Step One - Find an empty open plot of land.

undefined

Step Two - Make an upside down "U" in blocks (wooden recommended) , only one block high

undefined

Step Three - Dig a hole, one block down, at the entrance of the "U".

undefined

Step Four - Place a sticky piston, in the hole. (Pig is photobombing.)

undefined

Step Five - Place a wooden block on the sticky piston.

undefined

Step Six - Place a pressure plate in the middle of the hole.

undefined

Step Seven - Place blocks in the position shown below. ( Like an "A" )
undefined

Step Eight - Place a block (wooden recommended) at the side of the structure, then place a redstone torch on top of it. THen alternate the block and the redstone torch until it is 7 blocks (4 wooden blocks) high. (That's how you run a redstone current in a vertical position!)
undefined

It should look this this.

undefined

Step NinePlace redstone torches at the inner side of the top two blocks, as shown below.

undefined

Step Ten - Place slabs across the top.

undefined

Step Eleven - Place a sticky piston on the middle slab facing downward towards you.

undefined

Step Twelve - Place another sticky piston on the first sticky piston, also facing downward.
undefined

Step Thirteen - Place the last sticky piston on the second one, also facing downward. It should look like this.

undefined

Step Fourteen - Place redstone, leading from both sides of the machine in front of the redstone torches, to meet in the middle, not using more than 13 pieces of redstone.
undefined

Step Fifteen - Place one more redstone in front of the middle part of the previous redstone, and then place a lever in front.
undefined

Step Sixteen - Flick the switch of the lever. (Trust me, it'll help with the next step.)


undefined

Step Seventeen -
Add a suffocation-abled non-falling block to the third sticky piston. (Iron recommended)


undefined

Step Eighteen - Add a staircase in the back.


undefined

Step Nineteen - Open the block in the middle, so you can see your victim's last breath..

undefined

Step 20
- Flick the lever again, and enjoy ...

undefined



Optional ~ You can place a hopper in front of the guillotine and place heads in there!

Isn't being an EXECUTIONER fun? undefined

Mwahaha! This is perfect! Now I can test out ways of concealing the redstone so it's not as clunky.  Still, excellent use of your redstone skill. Diamond!

Or not PM you because PMC apparently thinks you aren't a member? Anyway...

I was planning on making it into just a wooden stand guillotine, the classic kind you would see in France or something like that, but the mechanism itself doesn't really allow for that. So I sort of made it into more of a death center. It's a building the prisoner and executioner go into but a crowd out front can still watch. I dunno. But ti came out slightly better than I thought it would e halfway through, aside from the awkward orange roof. I needed color of some kind. It looks really cheesy because I haven't had practice building in a long while.

Excellent tutorial and idea!
Though the text colour choices and unnecessary emoticons are squint-inducingly-painful.
