Wood is fine. You need a lamp iron on the top of the smokebox - easily made from a short length of 1/2" x 1/8" strip bent into an L shape. Then, weld a little peg about 1" up (to stop the headboard going right down) The headboard then has another lump of this bent into a U shape on the back, so that it slips over the lamp iron.
The board can be whatever size you want - but an arc of a circle looks best, say 8" diameter at the bottom, top to suit how big/much lettering you want.
