It is a known fact that wood is a natural material that moves and breaths with changes in temperature and humidity.

It wouldn’t matter if your substrate is 12” thick, if there are uneven stresses in the panel, it will move accordingly over time.

I am not saying it wouldn’t take a bit longer, but it WILL move – 100% guaranteed.
Will it stay straight and flat as it moves? That depends if it is balanced or not.
