If you use rabbets and dados, you should
be able to apply the laminate after and
trim flush using a bearing-guided trim
bit. Be sure to account for laminate thickness
when sizing the rabbets and dados.

You could consider Mod-Eez fasteners. They
can be used for butt joinery and are totally
concealed when assembled.

I had considered this, even though it complicates the build a little and I wasn’t exactly going for the lines of a rabbet at the corners, however, with full overlay doors and drawers, they would be hidden anyway.

I’ve located a company here in town that sells TFL Panels, HPL panels in like.. a gazzillion different colors and textures. I’m considering buying the panels with the laminate already on them, then cut and assemble.. that might produce a much better result.. also this opens up a whole world of possibilities in modern furniture design for a small shop.
