I use 1/2 pipe and fittings and attach the globe holders to it. I can run the wiring though it. It is pretty simple and clean. It works for me.

Hi Guys, I was PM'd for more detail on my globe mounts. Rather than respond to the PM's I decided to post for all to see. I made an aluminum plate adapter for the globe holders. On the first mounts I used a 4-bolt flange. On the new design I weld a nipple to the plate. Also, with this design you can have endless configurations. Here are some close up photos to help explain everything. Sorry guys it took so long to get you the info.

I thought I'd add to this thread so as to give RandyM the proper credit for giving me the idea for my display.
All of the parts except the globe ring and mounting plate are pretty much available from any hardware store.
I used 24" nipples to space the globes, and it allowed me to put each system on 16" centers. Lots of other nipples
involved as well. Had to use a macro lens on the camera to get a picture of the entire wall in, which distorts
things a little --- the globes are a safe distance from the pool table.

That's a good looking display. I remember this thread from a couple of years ago and I wondered then and still do......how in the world do you get all those pipe fittings to tighten up in the right position to hold everything solid yet not be loose? I've never been good at working with pipe so I'm sure there's a knack, and I don't have it....GB
