I’m building new kitchen countertops with 2 layers of 3/4” plywood. The kitchen is a C shape so I have two seams. I’m joining the seams with miter bolts. Do I need to join the seams of both layers of plywood with miter bolts or just the bottom layer? Will wood glue and nails work sufficiently to bond the two layers of plywood together or should I use something else?

Thanks for the advice.

I have always used bolts and nuts for the edges of my storage cabinets so that nothing comes loose even after years of usage. Nails get the job done pretty quickly but in terms of durability, they are not the ones to opt for.
