On request, I tried to recreate the sound of a guillotine, the invention of Dr Guillotin to make the decapitation less painful... A quite dramatic sound !
Feel free to suggest me other ways to do it (the sound, not the decapitation...)

This sound is composed of different unrelated sounds (a basket, a desk drawer, two pieces of wood rubbed together, an ax and the very end of a little bell).

    FYI this sound was made using some kitchen instruments, a very heavy drawer, and a half dozen sounds of sliding wood and metal. Plus a basket. The kind of sound effect that are really fun to make.
