Advice on wooden tripod please.

Could members recommend a good quality wooden tripod that would complement my "set up".
Would a Giro 3 mount "fit on" a WO wooden tripod without any "tinkering" (other than possibly the need for a "thread adapter") ?

About wooden tripods, the "rolls royce" are Berlebach.
They are rather expensive though, and personally I've been looking at Wolf tripods; this is a small company founded by a few people who used to work for Berlebach.
BTW unless you really want it, there's no need to use a counterweight on the GR3 with a scope like the WO90. It carries my APM 107 mm just fine.

I can second (and third) the suggestion for Berlebach.
ABSOLUTELY superb tripods - I use the UNIs and Reports for my Alt-Az UA UniStar Deluxe and SV-M2 mounts as my airline travel solution.
Oh - I'm in the UK as well
