Look up the difference between copywrite and patent laws. They’d have to patent the product in order for you to not be able to make and sell it. For instance, if I came up with a jig I can copywrite the literature, or the explanation on how to build it. But I’d have to patent the product if I didn’t want you to steel it. But, you’d just modify it and make it yours anyway. Trying to patent a woodworking product is a joke in my view, unless it is of course a tool, jig, etc that can benifit your wallet. But a candle lantern?
