I recieved a bunch of acrylic from a friend who is in the business to build my platter. I have one solid 3.5 inch slab and I have 3 slabs that are 1 inch each. I was playing around with the idea of laminating different materials between the three layers of 1 inch. So, If I did, what would I look for in terms of physical characteristics? vibration absorbing, transfering, grounding, resonating? thin layers of wood veneer, rubber, leave and airgap between em with balls of lead, or cigar butts?... I'll definitely keep the 3.5" chunk whole. As I'm typing, I think I know what the concensus will say..play around with it. I just wanted a little preliminary feedback.
