I have built a few empires.
There is no hard and fast rule for that buzzword, cld, imho.
I think building a runner with a thicker plinth is a great starting point.
I used 1.5" aluminum plate for the first three I built. Once you build a plinth and mount a tone arm you can start to play music. This is where the fun begins. Reading add copy from tt manufacturers is a tough way to try and build a deck. I think of the tt as a system of elements. Creating a marriage is a roll of the dice. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The R&D part of DIY is the fun. Oh, make sure the motor mount has enough clearance so it doesn't rub the plinth. I chased this noise for some time.
