You will have to seal the wood with something, so it doesn't matter too much. 
 There is a good plan at www.garf.org that you can adapt to your own 
dimensions.  This one uses plywood and exp;lains how to seal it with epoxy.  
Epoxy paints are a good approach, because silicone will seal the glass to it.
