The stonecutter can be used to craft stone-related blocks in smaller and more precise quantities than crafting. It also serves as a stone mason's job site block.

Obtaining[edit]

Natural generation[edit]

Stonecutters can generate inside stone mason houses in villages.

Breaking[edit]

A stonecutter can be mined with any pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe it drops nothing.‌[Java Edition only][1]

Usage[edit]

Cutting[edit]

The stonecutter can be used as an alternative to the crafting table to craft most stone related blocks. All of its recipes require just one ingredient and produces one product (in varying quantities). It allows skipping steps to craft certain blocks: for example, a stone block can be directly turned into chiseled stone bricks, this would require multiple steps with crafting. Stairs recipes are also more efficient than their crafting counterparts (yielding 6 stairs from 6 blocks instead of 4.)

Note Blocks[edit]

Stonecutter can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass drum" sound.

Changing profession[edit]

If a village has a stonecutter that has not been claimed by a villager, any nearby villager who has not yet chosen a job site block has a chance to change their profession to a stone mason.

Trivia[edit]

  • Even though the iron blade appears to be spinning rapidly, it deals no damage and has no hitbox.
  • A stonecutter is more efficient than a crafting table for making stairs, because the crafting table requires 1.5 blocks per stair (six blocks of stone to make four stairs) while the stonecutter requires just one block per stair.
  • The stonecutter was most likely based on the old Bedrock Edition stonecutter, as it has similar funtionality.
