Put some never-seize on the screws. It will act as a minimal barrier for electrolytic corrosion. Yes, you can attach wood to aluminum. You could even attach aluminum to aluminum if there is a source that is close to you and you can work with aluminum.

I love rivets. A rivet gun is a must have for rvers and it has come in real handy around the house as well. If you go with self tappers, stay away from home cheapo and lose. They sell crappy ones. (spelling intentional).
