I believe steel and wood glued together would work
ok in varying temperatures,
provided the glue has adequate flexibility.  I
doubt that the glue you proposed
is likely to last for long. I suggest you give it
a trial run in widely varying temperatures.

I suspect that you were responding to another thread, where I talked
about gluing stainless steel foil to the outside of a wooden panel body...

What's already certain is that the wood won't last as long as I'd like
without serious protection. The stainless skin appears as if it might do
that job - and if you can suggest a more suitable bonding agent, I'd be
very interested. This panel /is/ the trial run - and if it survives into
the next century I'd consider it a success. :)

You may be right about contact cement and temperature swings, but
there's only one way to know for certain...
