Also, just wondering - You think cheap plastic dowels would be SW safe? Way cheaper than buying acrylic threaded deals offline. Here's a link... what do you think?

Well, I can't tell what number plastic those are made of, and I haven't read whats aquarium safe as far as plastics beyond PVC and acrylic, but for humans #2, #4, and #5 are safe because they won't leach. (pop bottles are mostly #1, a plastic which will leach into it's enviroment over time, but it's considered "safe")

Even though #1, #3, #6, and possibly #7 leach into the enviroment, it's possible they won't affect your aquarium.

So.. is this live rock your working with? Or base rock? I think base rock would be easier to aquascape with since you could do it out of the tank and not worry about the rock dying.
If he is basically a week away from the cycle being over it is live rock now. Base rock is only base rock until you start growing bactira from your cycle. Then it is live rock.
