The stringers are long bits of beech or spruce that run alongside the body and change the shape from a boxed off section to take the curve of the material/covering.
The short ‘V’ shaped brackets that TLAC provide are tailored to length the further towards the tail that you go (for the side stringers)
Preparing the stringers takes around 2 hours each to round of the edges, then treat with 50% thinned polyurethane nefore another sanding, then final coat of full 100%.
They then slot part way through the ‘V’ and simply peg with a dowel – neat and simple !
