So I've upgraded my Minecraft to the latest 1.14 snapshot, 19w04a. And the first thing that went in my mind was building a wool farm, in a specific design I've had. So I thought I'd share it with you.
Nothing too fancy. Not industrial. Just cheap.
I initially started with a 2x2 square, 3 blocks of grass and 1 dispenser, filled with Unbreaking III shears (so that the farm goes on for long enough...), then I put another dispenser facing to the left with a water bucket inside of it, and eventually built this entire structure.
The button on the dispenser slightly above the other one activates both dispensers, so it allows to shear the sheep and flush the wool to a collection point (not shown in the picture). It worked fairly well, except that the inconvenient in this is actually getting the sheep to step on the upwards-facing dispenser...
Now, I actually know this design needs some improvements. For instance, I've thought I could integrate a system with the upwards-facing dispensers, which feeds it with Unbreaking III shears so that I could get it to work as long as I could. Also, I've thought of creating a wool farm "tower" (the area in this picture constituing the "cells" for the tower) with all 16 sheep colors, and get a main collection point for it. (However, it would be complicated to make the feeding system if I were to build a tower.)
So, what do you think of my design? I am open to your opinions and criticism. Should I also feel proud that I've figured out how to build this all by myself as well? (there could be designs which are resembling this one...)

Just figured out that when I'd turn 8 years old, the 23th of November 2011, my parents could have offered me Minecraft as a birthday gift. Sigh...
Fun but frustrating platformer. Saves me of boredom when I don't feel like playing Minecraft. Knowledge of 8-bit old-school videogames is optional tho'.
