There have been some people who have made pucks out of wood dust, but I have never heard of anyone using solid wood.  For one thing, I wouldn't think the hot plate would get hot enough to burn it.

There's a thread or two around here on making your own pucks.  I believe it is in this section.

The Bradley bisquette burner will reach around 550°F.

If I recall correctly, there was at least one member who tried solid wood pucks, with little success. I also believe he drilled several holes in each puck.

Try the thread below for starters.  No pics in it but it has links to some pics and videos on how it is done.
