that should work, though there will be only 1mm stuff left on both sides so you have drill it pretty straight.
propaply the best depth will be about the length of the led, so around 6mm or something?

I know many people have used this methdot. There are some possibilities to make this job bit easier:

-get thicker plexi piece
-use 3 mm leds
-sand down the 5 mm led

u could drill a 4mm hole and just put some hotglue in the hole first, then position the led the way u want it to shine.
