I built a couple of bookcases using oak plywood. I glued a 1/8” strip of oak on the bottom edge of the plywood on the first bookcase and didn’t on the second. I could hear it catching on the carpet fibers as I moved it into position. In hindsight, ( it’s always 20/20, right?), I wish I hadn’t got lazy. I should have done the same on the second bookcase. Based on my experience, I’d recommend you do the same. I really wasn’t that big of a deal. Like I said I was in a hurry and got lazy. That thin strip is barely noticeable down in that carpet. It won’t detract from your project.
