Practical Skills: The Simple Efficient Blaze Farm

Worth Noting: A good way to improve the efficiency of this design would be to increase the size of the 'Spawning Room' by 1 block extra on each side, and carry that down to the beginning of the funnel (So the top part of the funnel has a 2 block pathway going round)

Welcome to Episode 1 of my new series, Practical Skills in which I show you how to build various essential elements of Minecraft.

ETHO Disclaimer: Before anyone merely mentions the name Etho in the comments section, I want you to consider these few things.

1. This design is about as different as can be. Blaze can only (easily) be moved by pistons, and Lava lighting is the only way to solve the On/off function without getting very complex with redstone lamps.

Hello Everyone! My name is Mumbo (Or Oli) and I make Minecraft videos. I concentrate on the technical side of things, Especially working with redstone. Creating mechanisms you guys can enjoy, and tutorials so that you can learn a bit about how it all works! 99% of my Builds work in Vanilla Survival Minecraft, Some will even work on Minecraft 360! However most are meant for PC Gamers.

I also have a series on the MineCraft Multiplayer Survival Server HermitCraft. Working on Projects, Big Builds, Huge Farms. All in Vanilla MineCraft.

For all those wondering, I will never do Feed The Beast. Sorry.
