wood spokes

I'm working on the rear wheels of my Star and have discovered that there is a big difference between the front hubs and the rear hubs. I have no rear spokes as the axle,when I got it, had nothing but stubs back there and no fellows. Front axle has 21 inch wheels and I re-worked the spokes on them 2 years ago and they look great. What I'm wondering is does anyone know of a Spoke Maker that would have a pattern for the rear wheels. Every ad I've looked at says, send me an old spoke for a pattern, well I don't have one. Also would there be any spacer for taking up the slack between the hub and the wood and has anyone else had this problem and solved it. Any help would be appreciated.. Dave
