Marc – to reiterate again, I personally feel that when two or more panels are glued
together, and clamps are applied all the way around the edges, it forces any excess glue
to the center of the panels, “possibly” creating a larger wet glue mass that “could”
result in more moisture in the center than the outside edges where the clamps are.
for a trial assembly – put two drywall screws in the center to prevent slippage, put on a flat floor,
and stack a lot of weight evenly on the panels and see how that works for you. (skip the clamps).
this would be for any liquid adhesive or epoxy. not contact cement or construction adhesive.
discussing the adhesive factors over and over is just arguing semantics.
wishing you the best of success in finding what works best for you.

Thanks for your feedback and I appreciate that you have followed these two threads.
I think the point that glue in the center of the boards dries slower is very important
Since your initial recommendation I have been looking for ways to build them that way
I still need to decide on the right materials for this project whether it will be all plywood or a combination MDF + plywood. I understand now to use same thickness material
