LEGO Doorstop

Mother is the necessity of invention. Necessity is that of a door stop. And the invention is in LEGO.

(Thus the title!)

So, in an attempt to stop my door from closing on itself I decided to wedge a couple of bricks underneath it. Within a LEGO set there are many possibilities, but the final design is shown here. It took a few trials to work out whether the 1:1 or 2:1 gradient would work best, or whether it should be one of each, and whether it should have the studs point up or down. But ultimately, I settled on this design, where the door had the shortest distance of travel after connecting with the brick.
