The stonecutter is a stone mason's job site block, which can be used to craft stone-related blocks in smaller and more precise quantities than crafting. In New Nintendo 3DS Edition the block has no function other than decoration.



Name Ingredients Crafting recipe Description
Stonecutter Iron Ingot +

Stonecutter Iron Ingot +
Any Stone

Can use stone, andesite, polished andesite, granite, polished granite, diorite and polished diorite interchangeably.‌‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Natural generation[edit]

Stonecutters can generate inside mason houses in villages.

New Nintendo 3DS Edition[edit]

Stonecutters are only available from the creative inventory.



The stonecutter can be used as an alternative to the crafting table to craft most stone related blocks. All of its recipes require one ingredient and produce 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.)

Changing profession[edit]

If a village has a stonecutter and there is no stone mason villager, any nearby villager who has not yet chosen a job site block has a chance to change their profession to a stone mason.
