The only time I’ve seen this done successfully, the person building it glued the pieces up already assembled. I don’t know if that makes sense.
They did not build panels. They built the box as they went, putting four pieces down at a time on each level, sort of like building a log cabin. I hope that is explaining it right.
Anyway, I asked why they were doing it that way. He told me that he’d tried doing it similar to what I think you’re suggesting, and could not get the short pieces perfectly aligned so there would not be gaps later.
