The lumber you use will matter—QS less likely to cup than flat sawn.

You make me nervous when you say “QSWO edging.” I hope you are not planning to introduce a cross-grain situation by wrapping an edgeband around the end grain of a solid wood top. If you don’t allow for wood movement, you can create problems.

Always safer to finish top and bottom the same.

28×28 x 1 1/4 should be OK if you use QS stock, use the same finish top and bottom, and allow for wood movement.
