So the wither will only break blocks in front of it, and since this trap has no blocks in front of it, it does not realize that it is trapped, so it will stay like that forever.  Useful for killing him non legitly.

Snapshot edit:

In the new snapshot the wither explodes apon being formed, but the explosion is stopped by water.  Can someone try putting a water block on the top of the trap to see if he will still blow it up or not?

You could also, I suppose, set up a bank of "wither turrents". Put them in a chamber somewhere, rig a wall to open up with pistons, and... well, you can see the possibilities.

Sorta suspect, though, that something'll be coded to make them eat all surrounding blocks if they haven't moved for a while or somesuch.
You're just jealous 'cause the voices only talk to me :P

It broke the obsidian block on the top when I tried it.

Edit: I was 1 block off. Nevermind.

Seriously. These "Achievement Get!" signatures were never funny, or interesting.

Could this let you set up a Wither behind glass, as a kind of statue? Or does it see through the glass and shoot a wither skull at you?
Edit: Bomb Bloke, that's a funny idea :P

Just two days ago I saw a thread about how the Wither was too powerful. Unbeatable. Unreasonable. My response? That some time soon we'd see some way to imprison the thing. We'd see some way for human ingenuity to trump brute force.

So, thanks for maintaining my expectations of the human species. I'll be sure to try this at some point. When someone's refined it to a sure-fire method with building instructions and fail-safe advice.
Make note: I generally avoid being insulting. If I sound insulting, I'm probably joking.

This is a sure fire method and you don't need building instructions.

Your new here arent you
On topic: This is a great idea. Im also prob gonna do what LittleBreadLoaf said and put him in sort of a trophy case in the middle of my mansion. Maybe even put a beacon under him so hes shining. But then again youd have to summon and kill him twice, which isnt that hard, but still kinda a pain to kill all those wither skeletons. Im getting off topic. anyway, whoever thought of this  was really smart, i wouldnt have thought of this for a long time.

Of course, you could always just push the wither into a minecart.

I wish you luck with that. Been nice knowing you.
