I'd be very surprised if the intent of the instructions and plans is not to use simple rectangular stock and shape it after the wing is assembled. Especially given the oddball size of 3/16 x 1/2.

Even finding the correct 3/16 x 1/2 is going to be tough. Most folks cut stuff like this from sheet stock and as a result they can produce any size they need to work with a given airfoil.
