You could use mitred dovetails joints as well. Doing this with a single board would yield the same look as shown and be structurally sound.

It depends on what store you buy it from: target or custom wood place.

One piece of wood be awesome!

There be a few ways you could go about it.

Look up some plans and wood joints to get some ideas for construction

The miter joints sound good. I’d b concerned with sideward pressure on sides.

They are sometimes called a water fall tables there are several videos on You Tube.
