I use the table saw (or Router) to create a 1/4” wide x 3/8” deep dado on the front-edge of the ply; then create a mating tongue in the edging: the 1” x 1” is the non-inset piece of the hardwood. I secure this with T2 (Titebond II). This approach is a bit more woodworking than a simple edging; however, it provides significant strength, and will not come apart.

I hope this helps.
