I am trying to quote a job for a half octagon banquette. They want a white base with a walnut top. No storage. I would like to bounce some ideas off you guys. I am thinking building 5 framed boxes out of cabinet grade plywood. I think it would be better than working with 2×4s. Plus it would be easier to attach the top with custom wood clips. Will I be able to glue the walnut end grain to end grain. I will use dominoes. Do I need to account for any wood movement gluing it up this way? TIA

Picture or sketch would be helpful. not sure what you mean when you say “end grain to end grain” The table top connection would be flat grain to end grain, no??
