cabinet refacing edge

I am thinking about refacing my old cabinets.  I have been checking out some u-tube videos on the how to.  I know that I need to put plywood on the  side of the case at the end of the cabinets.  And I also know that the wood laminate goes on the front of the cabinets.  However, I can't find any tutorials that show what goes on the outside edge of the face frame from at the end of the cabinets. 

Just so I am clear this is the edge of the face frame that does not face me when I am standing in front of the cabinet, but (in my case) faces to the right.  My cabinets end at the entrance to the dining room.  The side of the upper and lower cabinets are clearly visible.  I need to cover all edges.  I was assuming this ege would be covered by the laminate, but the outside edge sticks out about 1/4 of an inch. However, if I put a plywood panel on the case that will make the two of them flush, or close to it.  If I put a strip of the plywood there then I have the issue that I have to get the plywood perfectly placed. It won't trim easily like the laminate.  What is the best way to cover this small detail area?
