Lazymand hit the nail on the head. You bound it to a material that would not move so it could not move and shrank and cracked.

As to the fix, tough you could remove screws and try to get that ply off and redo, by attaching to the bar with a non binding method i.e. crazy-eights or just chuck it to experience and redo the top.

Sometimes experience is painful. I had to redo a series of cabinet doors due to learning what happens when glue seeps into the grove of the rails and styles and you put the raised panels in. They cracked. I fiddled with a bunch of options to “save” and ended up chucking and doing over.
