Wood is nice indeed and it's not that hard to split a length of dowling, router out a bigger than the stay's diameter groove on both sides and to lash them as pictured with cut-down cable ties or small stuff.
The only caveat is that they need to rotate and this means they can't swell, so you will have to seal them inside and out and then varnish the outsides against UV. Also, wooden stuff here might look odd on more modern, "no exterior wood" designs.
