False-edged to comply with safety rules
Easy to assemble and disassemble for customization
Solid construction with no rattles
Redundant fastening to promote safety and longevity
User customizable with own fashioned parts

Progress:

Prototype 95% complete
Utilized all applicable precision processes in dry run
Researching cost effective secondary processes for those lacking from first prototype
Reduced design complexity based on initial assembly requirements
Increased rigidity via additional refinements
