I bought acrylic from US Plastic and made a light bracket for my 20L. My first attempt warped due too the acrylic being too thin and my design not bracing it well enough. Depending on what you have in mind, glass may be a better option. If not. consider how heavy the light is and bracing/thickness.

Good luck! It's fun but frustrating to work with acrylic. My second attempt was structurally on target, but my bonding skills are terrible (lots of air bubbles) and I scratched the heck out of it trying to polish it. All part of the fun of DIY.
