13' shelf out of 8/4 walnut

i need to build a 13' shelf that is 12" wide out of 8/4 walnut pieces.

im fairly new to this and thats a lot of expensive wood. So will it have warping or twisting problems.

This is basically going to be a shelf and it will be screwed down to a wall anchor every 4 feet roughly.

festool domino jointing.

So any suggestions etc?

That would be impossible to answer. More than likely you won't have any issues with it warping however wood has a mind of it's own. The only thing you might do is check it with a moisture content meter and check to see if it is straight now. The lower the moisture content the better. Don't use any that is above 12%.
