Two questions, any specific reasoning why the acrylic shouldn't be placed on top of the plywood? Second question, where can I find foam for that size? I would assume Home Depot or Lowes?

If you have the lumber for it, I would also like to see braces here for the outside legs, this keeps them from buckling inward, its unlikely that will happen, its not mandantory, but if you have extra wood, its a good idea.
