I’ve been learning from my father-in-law that patent infringement is difficult line. Making something for your own personal use it perfectly fine, making a plan and sharing it that directly rips off a product can get you in trouble. If the company doesn’t have an patent on anything other then the actual product itself then it takes little to make a derivative that doesn’t infringe; this is usually the case when they just come up with an original way to use preexisting items that have expired patents.
