I have made corner / wraparound desks in both solid and laminate varieties. I wouldn’t make a solid wood top that large. Just think about it in terms of several base cabinet units, with an MDF and Formica top. At points where you need support for the counter, but don’t want cabinets, you can make stanchions with doubled-up 3/4” plywood and face it with hardwood.

Good luck with it.
