Desk for my Son

I have promised my son a desk by his design. It will be shaped like a L with the longest section 6 foot,main working section. The shorter section just extra working area. There will be only two main legs turning down at ninety degrees down each end of desk. These will be the same width as desk top. I need advice on how to join the legs that run the same width as desk top.I will have a supportive narrow leg in the middle,back corner.Does any body have suggestions on joinery ?

Please make a sketch. I cannot visualize what you want from your description.

Are you trying to say that the ends of the desk are solid and form the legs? Or something else?

I have built a computer desk of the L shape but cannot fit your description to anything on that desk.

You could investigate pocket holes.

Simple design ... harder to do without significant support under such a span of wood.
