I have an underground village all planned out on graph paper, and am ready to start building it. I have decided to have three block thick walls, with the middle being obsidian. Overall, I need a space 53 blocks long, 53 blocks wide, and 31 blocks high. What would be the most efficient way to do this?
A bit faster and more coordinated than TNT, but requiring a mod, is WorldEdit, which allows you to select regions and remove or replace blocks (all or only a certain kind, which is quite handy). I also recommend WorldEditCUI then.

Once configured (your hotkeys will vary), you can select the corners of the box you wish to hollow out, then remove all the blocks first by changing them all to a single box then removing all of that one block.

Step Two: Fill the selection with your selected item (in this case dirt) by pressing Z.
Step Three: Remove all of your selected item (again dirt) in the selection with LSHIFT+Z.
If you're looking to make outer walls, redefine your selection to be smaller after filling the area with stone or Obsidian.
