When cross cutting veneered plywood I score the cut line with a sharp knife and then cut on the "scrap side" of the score.

Doing this is almost a necessity (at least for me) when using Box Store plywood. With quality grade plywood such as that from Woodworkers Source I find it less necessary. Sadly, when you discover that it was necessary it is too late.

Nice job though even if you did have some splinters.

Great Job!
Good idea taking pictures of the assembly process. I never think of taking pictures until something is done.
Looks super. I love the way Red Oak plywood looks.
Red Oak ply wood is what I used also. I too scored with a utility knife before I dadoed. Kind of a pain but necessary after trying a sample cut.
I only did two shelves that way, the rest were holes and shelf brackets. I'm not smart enough to figure where I want the shelves.
Now trim the edges with cherry and it will look a lot like the one I did.
