Stonecutter Overview

Inside the Stonemason’s house.

Stonecutter is one of the 13 Job site blocks Villager use to work. A Villager who works with Stonecutter is called Stonemason or Mason. You can always find Stonecutter inside the Stonemason’s house.

If there is an unemployed/jobless Villager standing near the Stonecutter, it will become Stonemason.


Stonecutter can be used to cut stone-type blocks to make new variations of the particular block. For example, a Stonecutter can make Stone Brick Stairs from a Stone.

These block variations are intended mainly for decoration purposes.

Crafting Table, however, can also make these block variations. But it’s not precise as the Stonecutter.
