If you look at his work the inside edges are molded not flat cut so banding could not be used.

All he has to do is either edgeband his plywood (manually of course) or post-veneer his case with a basic paint grade backer once the unit is assembled.
He could also be using raw MDF for his face—sanding the edges to a paintable finish.

Either way, the plywood edge is hidden.

FYI, a CNC makes total sense for complex geometry pieces.
Only slightly more effort than building a rectangular unit.

I have also used Timbemate but that needs sealing before any water based paint ot finish.
