What joint to use with plywood
Once again a novice question, so thanks for your assistance and patience.
I'm building a small, very simple bookcase out of 3/4" white birch plywood. My only concern is how to make the joint attaching the top and sides. I will put on a face frame and do not want to put any trim on the sides of the top, so the top+side joint will be exposed. I was planning to rabbit the top but that will expose a small amount of the plywood end grain.
What is the proper joint to be used? Is exposing a small amount of end grain typical and acceptable? This is a project for my girlfriend, who just wants me to nail a couple of pieces of shelving together but I'm trying to work on proper technique with any project I do.
I will be using some sort of stain simply to work on those skills as well.
