Seems like this design would encourage channeling along the walls of your column. Maybe each section could have a centering ring? Seems like a lot of work though.

Why would channelling be an issue with plates?.

I think performance might be affected by potential heat loss/thermal transfer,, but have no idea if that's a good thing or a bad thing in terms finished product. May very well amount to higher attenuation?

Gonna build it?

Looks neat. I don't know why it wouldn't work. Might be more of a novelty / challenge type build though.
