I am dubious of the epoxy glueup anyhow, I just cannot believe that it soaks in the wood fiber and bonds anywhere near the strength of dedicated wood glue. Probably a tradeoff, much less time for...

Star of David or Pentagram would be my guess, looks like it turned out nice.

Don't need paper, unless you are worried about leaving an imprint on the plexi. I usually load the project in win cnc so you can see it, and hover to an area that is to be engraved.
