Topic tags/keywords: using brass rods

I am trying to create a project where 5 or 6 brass rods are inserted perpendicular to a 12” square x 1/2” thick wooden base, most likely high quality plywood. The goal is to insert the rods and allow them to be removable. In order to make it stronger I was thinking of using t-nuts to insert the rods in for stability. But I’m not sure the threads of a t-nut would eliminate a wobble in the rods. Is there a better product I just can’t think of? The concept of a t-nut is perfect but I can’t find non threaded ones anywhere.

Flange bushing/bearings or something similar maybe?

Cheers,

If you thread the ends of the rods so that they screw into the-nuts, they won’t wobble.
