Like you I wouldn’t really want to stick a big piece of laminate countertop in my study. It’s certainly possible to laminate solid pieces together to do this, although you should know that you need a jointer and planer and that it’s going to involve a lot of sanding or handplaning.

At my brother’s house he and I installed a solid wood countertop ( for a desk. Unlike your situation, it only went along one wall, from corner to corner, so it was quite easy to install with a couple of cleats.

If you have 3-4 drawer units it shouldn’t really be a problem to get the sections level: just build a wood base under each and adjust, either by shimming the low parts (if you have some kind of trim to hide it) or plane off the high spots until it fits.
