Is it possible to use your tools to do this with plastic? If not, ready-made plastic pieces may be able to be glued/screwed together with a good polymer adhesive to make a similar mount that may be more compact and wouldn't need the weather sealing treatment. Nice work tho.

Don't think so. I think cutting plastic would require slower speeds and different cutting blade geometry to minimize heat. You saw the burn marks on the wood. That would melt plastic and gum up the teeth on my blade and would be impossible to remove.

I still see the risk of light leakage when you use the 1000x ND (such like the big stopper).

I finally finished my holder after acquiring a Lee 150x150 ND0.9 filter. Finalized width, glued it up, sealed the wood, and sprayed it black.

slots for two filters
