Default FD Roller, Material?, Method?

Has there been any general agreement on the best material & method to make a friction drive (FD) roller?
I see that cannonball2 seemed to settle on wood, but he didn't say that exactly.

Some people have suggested getting sheet rubber via eBay

The Roller, what is the latest opinion on the subject?

And while we're on the subject, what's the wisdom on fixing the roller to the shaft?
