With a decent tablesaw, you should be able to get adequate
straightness from a 2x4 after a couple of light passes on both (of
the narrow) sides (I'm assuming of course that the wood is reasonably
dry and straight to begin with. ) Obviously would also be easy to
make a notch for the u-joint.

Zebrawood 2x4 recommended for best results. :-)
