I imagine that Gingko Audio will make a custom version for you in their nice clear acrylic. You should contact Audiogon member Vtvu if interested.

Vinh Vu at Gingko Audio is an excellent craftsman of dust covers. He makes a dust cover for the Nottingham Spacedeck for $249. It is listed on his web site:
The dimensions are listed as 19.5 x 15.75 x 9 inches. If this is not tall enough, he can probably make you a custom version. I recommend his work without reservation.
He is an Audiogon member; his id was "vtvu", but he may have changed it in the last year or so.
I just had a custom 22"x18"x10" clear acrylic cover with rounded front and back top seam and cutouts for cables in back, made for my Clearaudio Master Solution for a grand total of $99.00 CDN. It was done by a local Plastics company and they did an excellent job. Check out your local plastics companies. I can send you a pic if you like ... looks great ... and cheap!
I made one out of a silk like material from a fabric store, cut to be draped over the entire turntable. They make a glue like materaial that you put on the cut edges to prevent fraying. I use this on both my Spacedeck and Basis turntables and in fact over about every component I own, works great to keep out dust. Cost about 4.00 per SQ yard. This is a very cost effective alternative.
Tap Plastics is correct as mentioned above and they did a fantastic job and for under a $100. Tap Plastics is in California and they will make and ship what ever you want. I just gave the info to another agoner and he lives on the east coast, Tap is making his cover for his Nottingham and will ship it to him. Forget the TT companies or Ginko unless you want to pay a 200% mark up! Here is there phone number (925) 828-7744 or go to there web site www.tapplastics.com
if you want a beautifully made dust cover, that you will be satisfied with, and will compliment the looks of your table, bite the bullet, and get the Ginko Audio cover, $249 is alot, but it is worth it for the satisfaction you receive. Don't try to skimp, because i really doubt that you will be ultimately satifsfied.
