Default RE: suggestions for wood and sizes for Stikadet bash

I would think about using a couple of dowel rods and a piece of plywood or blocks to thread for nylon wing bolts to attach the wings instead of rubber bands the Sweet Stik and the Kadet use. Don't forget a thin plywood doubler for the trailing edge of the wing so you don't crush your trailing edge. Are you going trike or tail dragger on the gear? You can make a good argument for both and I own both. If you don't believe ask the questions and the number of opinions you will get will convince you. I see it as more of a personal choice and something you decide based on how you want to airplane to look when static or your own comfort level.
