Good prep, Deaner.

How small are you going to cut the ply? If there is any bowing in the sheets, the smaller the better I would suppose.

There will be no shrinkage with the ply indoors.

I’m envisioning the biscuits being stapled in from the top. It wouldn’t be a super joint, but it would keep it all together as you assemble.

If you alternate grain direction it would look pretty cool….until you start putting machines and benches and cabinets on it!

In summary, I’d say go for it, and again kudos for your prep and thought.
