They make particle board specifically for making counter tops. It comes 25 inch wide and 144+ long. I would use that & what ever HPL you like.

I would use spline and draw bolts where ever you have to join two pieces together. I would take the time and money to get some good draw bolt that are easy to use like the ones in this video.

laying under a counter top with a little wrench and make a 1/4 of a turn at a time in a pain in the ass.

Something like this but I’d use a spline or domino in place of biscuits.
