It's definitely been done.
Let me suggest 8mm bolts, and also suggest some sort of locating feature (pegs/holes, slots/strips) so it's not just the bolts holding things together.
Also do not glue the bolts in place, but put them clean through - they may get damaged and need to be replaced. Glue or screw large (24mm OD) washers at the holes to spread the load. Use brass wing nuts on stainless bolts - they won't seize if you tighten them too much.
Let us know how it works!
