If you have a dado stack you do not need a router bit. To join the pieces together. just dado your walnut on your inside edge to accept your plywood thickness.
With that said just going off what you gave for info. Your just making a flat panel front. Which 1 will not be very pleasing unless your painting them but why would you paint walnut ? 2 your dado in the walnut will only leave what an 1/8 inch each side of the dado if your using 4/4 walnut stock. (Might be less I didnt do the math).
My point is from what info you gave you really need to think about what you want it to look like because once you put the frame around 3/4 ply with no bevel on the edge your frame will not be strong at all. If your using 3/4 ply and 6/4 walnut your door will be huge. So yea your gonna have to either bevel your table saw. To cut a bevel on the door face. Or buy a fancy router bit. I’d take this back to the drawing board. It’s not seeming to me your numbers are gonna come out well in the end here. Or a biscuit joiner but that’s sketchy with ply imo
