Now first of I have never used a router, so that is why i am asking.

If I was building a bookshelf out of oak plywood, could I make rabbits for the pieces to come together with a router or that impossible because of the way plywood is made.

Sure. Score the final cut line to reduce tearout. Insure your edge guide and bit are tight. Depending on how wide and deep you're cutting, take it in steps (a little at a time) rather than try to take one big cut all at once. If you seem to get chatter, back off your depth or width of cut as you're trying to take out too much at one time. I prefer a 1/2" shank router bit as it's heavier than 1/4" and runs truer.

Practice on some scrap before working on your good wood. Be safe and careful and know what you can and can't do.

Thanks for the help. I will try it on some scrap first, but at least I know it can be done. I just wanted to use oak plywood instead of wood pieces.
