Wood threads really need to be larger than normal threads due to the porous grain of wood. Even with a 3/8 rod threaded, the nuts would be too small to hold threads or not split in half at normal 3/8 nut size. Do they have to be threaded? could you glue heads on hardwood dowels and then glue on a hex shaped cap after inserting the dowel? Otherwise, 1/2” is doable if you could modify your plans.
