This will give the illusion of a thick slab while hiding the substrate.

I still think you should talk to a fabricator before going further.
I'm going to, thanks. We are also considering a tile countertop...heard that looks nice.

I did a butt joint on 12"x12" granite tiles on the counter top in my rental. It looks really sharp and minimized the grout lines. The store I got them from had a prefabbed edge moulding, made of the same granite, that covered up my plywood base.
