I thikn that you’re going to need an apron aroudn the top or it might want to “rack” on you from lateral movement.

Id go half way into the slab, so about an inch, with the dowels.

As far as stablizing the top … whatever you use for a finish on the top make sure you finish the bottom of the slab the same way.
