In 1959 when I was innocent and a new ham (13 years old and broke), I constructed the mast that was in the handbook. Made out of 2x4's and carriage bolts. I used it for one end of a dipole. Worked good and I still have a picture of it. If memory serves me, my neighbor (now K5RC) also used it as a support for his dipole.

I remember an ARRL antenna book about 30 years ago had plans for a wooden
tower made out of 1X2's. I never tried it because the 1X2's we get in AZ and
NM would make it look like a corkscrew. Think I'll wait a few years on the
poly tower to see how it holds up to sunlight!KA5W
