So the only overhang is ~14 inches? I’m getting thrown off by the different widths along the 84” length, but that sounds like that doesn’t make a 2 foot deep overhang or something like that or you’ve already got that support figured out.

Someone else will have to give you real advice on how many braces you might need. Speaking out my tushy, I’d go with whatever might divide the number of stools evenly. 4 stools, use 5 braces, 2 for the ends and 3 dividers, or something along those lines. My thought is that 14 inches isn’t too much overhang for 2 inch thick counter top even considering the grain orientation. So 2 ought to be good enough structure wise.
