My idea of “exotic wood”... incense cedar fence board from the big-box store! Total cost was less than a buck.
Ripped some to half thickness for the struts, and “planed” the second side also with the table-saw. Using some advice from Mathias (at woodgears.ca) my tablesaw is prediminantly loaded with a 7” skil-saw blade, a thin kerf cross cut one, does a fantastic job. Even used it to cut the tenons (no dado stack yet).
All mortice-and-tenon joinery. Finished with a couple of coats of poly.
