Not too sure about threading doweling, but standard engineering taps like say 1/2 in UNC cut just fine in decent wood. Birch ply takes quite a durable thread too. It might be worth trying a die nut to make your rod, but probably best to make sure in either case that your drill/dowel diameter is fractionally over/under so it doesn’t jam while cutting.

Danish oil is a very effective lubricant on wood, and by penetrating and curing would probably also strengthen the wood quite a bit which might be worth a try where the grain direction is unhelpful in solid wood..
