IMO, no.

Why is there 1/2" irrigation running through the column?

I would not use the piping through the column, it an old world thing...I would make up perforated plates to slide into the column, as your already plan on utilising a deflag for reflux, add a shotgun product condenser, then you will have a bubbler minus the sight glasses...

I have no problem with building plate column. I just wonder if this type of the still will operate the same way as plated column still.

The design you put forward would strip flavour from your wash, where as a plated column produces a lighter full flavoured distillate. I feel the two most important still types you can use are a pot still and a a plated column...the one the drew would be better for neutrals. it would work. how efficiently is the question?

Looks like a good design if your building a reflux for neutrals, it may work as an average pot if there's no water flowing through the pipe work, would have to try it out in that mode to see if you get enough flavour carry through.

Sorry to say but this design isn't god for neutral, its an old design (running cooling pipes thru the column, labmaster style ) and is not the way to go for neutral.
if you are going for just neutral you have VM, LM, ARC columns that does the job really god and for flavors you hav potstills, plated and so on.

If you want a small and "something that everybody doesn't have" stillhead, try the FOA stillhead. They are really good for flaverd spirits, and if you put a 1 - 1,5 meters column with SS scrubbers in under you get neutral to :-)
And if you build a ginhead and put it under the FOA head you got Gin, flavored vodka... do I have to say more ;-)

(If you are interest in the FOA stillhead just pm me and I draw a build plan for you)

Cheers
