My thought would be to wait until the bike is built and can scope out your 
clearances.  Medium reach brakes and 28mm tires are a good combination for 
normal fenders.  My expectation is that when you get the brakes set up with 
the tires in there, you will conclude that you can't fit an unmosified flat 
wood fender in the remaining brake arch-space and you'll be faced with four 

A.  No fenders
B.  Normal metal or plastic fenders
C.  Flat wood fenders, filed away at the edges to clear your brakes
D.  Flat wood fenders, bisected with double hardware to avoid the brakes
