It would be tricky to lay it up hollow. It can be hollowed out through the small hole in the top, but it would be a royal pain in the ass and take a long time. Better to make a larger hole in the bottom to work through then plug it and glue a piece of anti-skid/anti-scratch material over it.

My choice would be to stick a dried posy in it and forget it.

Why not lay it up with a hexagonal unglued blank section? Like you put a support in an arch of bricks? Then at the end, just pull the "plug" out. Of course, how much empty do you need? Just enough for a couple of flower stems. Drill it out.

Or lay it up over a blank of Styrofoam, drill the hole, and dissolve the foam.

Do big slab doors like that move with humidity changes?

I like it a lot, but imagine it would bind in the summer and let cold air in in January.

If it closes against the casing rather than inside the casing, it shouldn't be a problem. Or if it fits loosely in the casing but against a stop trim.
