I'd say make your own. I'm trying to track down some sort of building plans for you right now. I'll let you know if I find anything.

This gives you views of many different kinds, and some dimensions and material for building. Still not detailed plans:

You could try entering the name of the stretcher in the search of the US Patent Office (http://www.uspto.gov/).
