How’s that for helpful? ;-)

It has a lot to do with the wood, the environment and how the panel is structured. In theory, the answer is yes. The thinner the material and the better it’s constrained, the less movement it will experience. Plywood is stable for this very reason. Although plywood has more strata and alternates grain direction. I don’t really see the need to cut in strips and glue back into panels though. If it were me, I’d just resaw it as it is.

The biggest things to look for though are: Is the wood dry before you start (12% MC or less) and where is the board from in the tree? Quartersawn or flatsawn?
