Step 1: Location, Location, Location...

This trap is of a very large size, the best location for something like this would be the end of a maze, with the reward being a (rigged) diamond block. (Pic demonstrates size)

Step 2: Bait

Well this is a pretty basic set up, a diamond block in the middle of the wall (make it pretty wide) I put I sign that says "Congrats! You win!" Right over the block.

Step 3: Rigging

The first picture is the diamond block with a sign on the back. Do this and connect the signs together like in picture 2. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE SIGNS ARE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER, NOT THE BRICKS! Then, make a sort of roof at block height four out of signs. Again, very important that they are connected to each other. And finally, try to make it look inconspicuous.

Step 4: Finish Building

Just finish building the exterior of the building, don't have a great image for this one, pretty self explanatory. However do put the door parallel to the diamond block.

Step 5: Arming

Ok, remember those signs that you made as a roof? Cover them with five layers of gravel, the signs will keep them from falling. After the five layers have been applied, surround them with bricks like in the pick.

Step 6: Distractions, Distractions...

Well, after I finished arming, I decided to distract my victims. So, using strategically placed bars and mobs created the perfect distraction.

Step 7: Set It Off

Well, if all went well. You will see a mountain of gravel coming down upon your head. Although this takes forever to reset, it is well worth it.

    omg works great only got one problem… you can't really mine diamond without iron picaxe and they won't mine it on creative

    About an hour, but on creative, however, I was taking screenshots every minute or so. So probably around 45-55 minutes.
