floating/freestanding breakfast counter in front of window

New kitchen, without a huge amount of space for an eat-in area. Thought a bar spanning the window would be very cool, not eat up a huge amount of walking space, provide a nice place for computing, coffee, etc.

Distance between walls is 131 inches. Figured it would be good design-wise to span the whole space, just come to the depth of the drywall.

Pretty sure my friends could help me with making a plywood template, attaching to the studs – perhaps a central support leg would be well advised?

Read that some people like to make the plywood template and then have sheet metal fabricator cover with stainless steel.

Any suggestions, diy tips, thoughts, products, recommendations would be most appreciated. A pro job isn’t in the budget.
