I want to build a lamp
socket base out of wood. In general I'd have a total of three lamps sockets hanging from it, which I'd feed through drill holes and would wire together in a hollowed out part of the wood.

This means electrics and flammable material together.Naturally, this brings up some concerns as I don't want to burn down my house. Is this in general a bad idea, or how can I achieve this in a safe way?
