I’m sure as long as the panels are floating (sorry if that is stating the obvious) there won’t be a problem cherry & oak will expand & contract at different rates due to density. the thing I would recommend is to make up each face of the panel ,mould the bevels on each outer face then don’t completely glue the faces just run a centre line of glue this will alloweach wood type to come & go the outer edges will be trapped it the rebate behind the moulded bead. It does work well I did once try gluing a two faced panel & one side expanded more & split the other
Good luck
