The only requirement is that it does its job to your satisfaction.
For my first-ever build, I bought a lifetime supply of uninsulated copper wire from a local electronics surplus outfit (it's silver on the outside, maybe it's the same stuff?). It's rather a bit light for its work, but it's close enough; the advantages are that it prevents me from torquing the wood TOO much (it breaks before the wood does), and requires only teensy little holes. It forces me to focus more on finesse than brute force, and a for a production-oriented knucklehead like me, it's direly-needed reminder at times.
