I know it goes against conventional wisdom, but I have made many, many boxes with glued-on solid wood bottoms and/or tops, and I have yet to have a single problem caused by wood movement. I will add the caveat that here in southern Louisiana humidity levels remain pretty high throughout the year, so wood movement might be somewhat less of a problem than it is in colder climates.
