Well, lets step back just a moment - the longerons, in this case, are not structural AND are wrapped in glass. the purpose of the longerons is for ease of attachment, or so we have been told buy a few that hold themselves out as knowledgeable.

Since that is the case - good quality other wood should be no problem to substitute. As the pieces are bent, straight grain should be found, but as the bending is very minor, the 1 in 12: grain runout could probably be reduced to 1 in eight inch, these are not pretzel bends
