Nah, 1.25" would be fine for this height & span with ~ 1/8" deflection, 1.5" would be helpful but not necessary by any means. And there are magnets made for 1.25" acrylic. With 1.25" acrylic, looking at a 4" perimeter flange and a single 8" cross-brace yielding 2 top openings measuring 16 x 22"

If really wanting these dimensions, not a DIY project IMO..
