To have the solid walnut look with none of the downfalls, band saw the walnut boards into ~1/8”-thick boards, plane and/or sand them, then glue them to a plywood substrate. Apply finish to both sides and all edges (especially in the sink hole) to protect it from kitchen humidity. Seasonal movement will still occur, only to a much lesser degree, and since it s essentially plywood, probably irrelevant.

This is more than likely the rout I would take also…1/8” thick veneer pressed top and bottom onto 3/4” water resistant MDF. About as stable as your going to get.
