Default Stick cabinet construction

Had an idea last night, but I've never seen it done like this (in my limited experience of speaker building).

Having seen stacked pieces assembled to form a cabinet, most notably "The Two Towers" The making of: The Two Towers (a 25 driver Full Range line array)

I was wondering about building stacking sticks from front to back, as opposed to stacking from bottom to top. Then, the outside could be sanded smooth, and the inside would stay irregular.

Kinda like this:

it would probably work, but keep in mind that wood is constantly moving and it will dry unevenly, making it difficuult to get a good result. Best is be to use really really dry wood when making the cabinet

I have made a wooden curved cabinet using birch wood. I glued together pieces making a board, then i made groves on the inside (like the MDFboard thats bendable). It tured out pretty good, but still after 7 years the wood is moving and changing a little bit. The top and bottom of the speaker is design so it lets the wood move without creating cracks.

I can try to look up some pictures of the design.
