Patio Table Acrylic Cover

I have a 30" round cast iron patio table with a mosaic top. I am trying to find clear acrylic or something similar to put on the top of the mosiac. Has anyone ever done that and where did they find the acrylic? Did you have to cut it yourself or can you buy it already cut?

The best way is to go with Lexan not Plexiglass.
Plexy will yellow, scratch easily, and craze.
Any real glass company should be able to order or make one for you.
It can be done DIY but it's a pain to get a nice finished edge and have it be perfectly round.

thanks for your reply Joe. Unfortunately the majority of the companies who will cut acrylic or lexan to cover the table, are located in California and the cost of shipping is more than the "dumpster dive" restored patio set. It will be located in a screened-in porch but will be subject to salt air. Mosaic is old and cracked so I wanted to preserve what I could. Maybe epoxy?
