Yes, the design is based on the Versalab siphon. The insert is similar to the sheet film washer that Zone VI sold. Obviously, a shameless ripoff all around!

I think the challenge you will have in making a custom washer for 14x17 film will be finding a container in a usable size. I got lucky in finding the planter on my first trip to Home Depot. If you cannot find anything else, the Versalab 16x20 washer is great and reasonably priced.
