Default Cutting out letters in mdf

Guys I have played with plexi on my RT but I'd like to take it up a notch and build a sign with a cool font .this sign would be checker plate aluminum in front and 1/2" plexi in behind with matching text so that I can put in LEDs to highlight the lettering . Let's say the letters were a foot tall and the sign was 18 by 36 .
I think this might be better off left for a cnc water flow jet cutter though .

As mentioned I have dabbled with shaping plexi when it was attached to an mdf form on my RT . I had to cut away the plexi as much as I could so the router bit didn't catch to much as it was following the mdf jig.
I know this is apples to oranges though

Here's some door pods I made for my 84 GMC when I dabbled with plexi . But I have no idea how to do letters and if it's even possible to make your own sign they way I want it
