Is 'nt it just glassed together like you said, they use the wood in areas where strength is required or extra stiffness etc, not sure the wood bits are bolted together so to speak, my impression is that the wood is just glassed in where it is needed.
However this is just my guess from what I remember from what James Reinman explained when he built my sheltie and i went to watch a couple of times.
