Build Instructions:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Guillotine/

I couldn’t find free directions online so I did my best job of reverse engineering and scaling a 1790’s French style Guillotine. Note that the blade is real and therefore it is dangerous (see video). Although I’m only using it to cut carrots and other vegetables, it could potentially do some serious damage to your finger! If you want a safe version, I suggest making the blade from wood or plastic and not including the weights

Nice job. It looks like a full scale real deal in the photo.

Barbie Antoinette could not be reached for comment….

Looks pretty cool, but one is compelled to inquire: Whatever motivated you to build THIS particular project?
