I've had may folk ask if I hold the design copyright to this, so I'd just like to clarify that yes, I do. You'll need to get in touch if you intend to build from my design for commercial gain. Making one for yourself (or a couple of friends) is fine of course, and encouraged! Companies however can't steal my design for profit without prior arrangement... it's happened before 😄
