Tempered glass cannot be cut because the tempering puts the surface under tension and cutting that surface causes the glass to shatter. There are several options including laminated safety glass, lucite, which is strong, or plexiglass.Tempered glass could also be ordered but it will have to be custom made, and therefore expensive. Just make sure whatever you use is as strong as the original material .
