Gluing faux stone to plywood

I am making a fireplace enclosure around an electric insert.I have some boxes of faux stacking stone that do not show mortar lines between them. How well would attaching them to a plywood box with construction adhesive work.I want to keep it simple and light weight.I can't imagine them falling off very easily.
Any thoughts?

It should be more than fine. When I bought my house, the previous owner had applied flagstone over the brick fireplace. It looked horrible and I prepared to take it down. The flagstone was glued on to plywood which was tapcon'd into the mortar joints over the brick fireplace.

The way I figured it, he glued the flagstone to pieces of plywood while laying down. he then installed those pieces onto the fireplace directly. After that he pointed the joints for visual effect.

After pulling off the material, it was evident that only glue held the flagstone to the plywood. Good luck
