Orient, problem with wood is, in our country's weather + versys's buzz - that wood stick would degrade very quickly and you would have it snap broken anytime.
i would suggest a combo of water pipe with end caps and a generous amount of steel epoxy instead
drill the end caps with a hole in middle, insert a bolt thru from the inside of the caps and fill the insides with epoxy to hold the bolts in place. you would need to prepare 2 bolted caps.
cut the pipes to appropriate length and secure the caps onto both ends of the pipes, again with epoxy to secure it solid. leave to cure for at least 6 hours. i would prefer 24 though.
then just mount the pipe onto your bracketry with nuts and loctites. it would last longer than a wood stick.
