Hi,Sthcoaster. The clear acrylic sheet is usually used to be made into led backlight panel or acrylic lighting panels. It can be cut into any sizes and shapes with the laser machine. The saw is also can be used to cut it. According to my experience, it is difficult to melt & pour the acrylic sheet. If you need the clear material and backlight it, may be you can try the clear glass cement. It is easy to buy and use it.

What you need is a light pipe. They're available commercially (Digiey, et al.) They're often used with SMD LEDs. A piece of acrylic rod would do the same job. I bet it'd look really nice if you polished the end of the rod.
