Make sure he uses very thick acrylic like Norm does. These things get a lot of bumps and bangs. Bottom edges can chip and start cracking with lighter gauge acrylic. The two main companies make expensive products but they are very well crafted and ultimately worth the cost.

Anything over 1/4" thick will be too heavy.

1/4" is perfect!! And, yes, it is plenty heavy enough at 1/4".

Stereo Squares dust covers for the Prime are very nice. I bought the two piece, hinged cover and could not be happier.

I invested some money in some sorbothane sheeting and added that to the outside rear surface of the bottom half of the dust cover. I also bought some thick sorbothane strips to act as a gasket that the cover sits on. The result is a dust cover that has no negative side effects.

I can play my music at very loud levels and I do not have any feedback problems. Highly recommended...

That was a smart idea isolating the dust cover from your platform to avoid the dust cover capturing acoustic energy and transferring back to the platform/table
