Edge Banding for countertop

My daughter is covering a plywood countertop with 3/4 inch T&G flooring that will result in the end grain being exposed. We will create an edge band strip to cover the ends. Below are several options. I am looking for opinions whether one is better than the others. Your thoughts?



Four options for edge banding. Which would be better?

Option #1 is the easiest and what I've always done along with glue and finish nails. My office desk is done that way but with plywood instead of flooring. The other options might be better a little better although I've had zero issues with mine.
