Yes, if you look through posts here, I recall seeing pictures of wooden mount and it looked very solid indeed (and in my humble view a lot better from a point of view of damping vibrations).

Solid as a solid thing ... experimented once with the HEQ5Pro head and 200PDS , coped admirably , it was just the getting stuff that size up there ...  :p

Built it to keep a view of the Sun in the depths of winter when he's so low .

It's only 95 x 95 mm , but securely braced to the wall , if I were to make a shorter free stander I'd up it to 150 x 150 myself , good knot free , straight grained timber should be fine , may need to check PA now and again as wood will invariably move a bit over the course of the year .
