Bill makes a very good point about gluing two panels back to back.
That’s the key. Someone else on here recently posted a comment about having some of that material (single sided laminate counter top) laying around for over a year before they went to use it and it had cupped.
Gluing two sheets back to back avoids that problem. Sealing the edge with a trim of solid wood is just extra protection. Best way to go in my opinion.

Come to think of it, do you suppose the guy selling “fiberglass coated” plywood really is selling phenolic coated plywood and just doesn’t know what he has? I ask that because I never heard of the former, but the latter is fairly common and really good stuff; but expensive.
