They sell metal ones for about $23, but thought it would be easy to make one from a wood dowel.

Anyone attempt this before and care to share ideas

They should sell the wooden ones next to the metal ones, I think they are 1 1/8 diam just like the metal ones.

The wooden ones are around $7, I think, but you can also use electrical metal conduit. That’s about $5 for 10ft.
