George: Epoxy is one, Gorilla Glue is another. If you use the latter, be sure to read the directions even if that threatens your manhood. 8-)

both will only work so so. goop will do a great job. that will make a bond that the material will break before the joint.

one is plastic is really hard to glue. things just don't stick to it. second is flex. the two materials flex differently and that tends to break things up. the 5200 is the goop I was talking about. it is a hard version if silicone. the only disadvantage is it takes several days to fully cure where it does not get air.

Epoxy. Watch how your piece is stressed. If your usual stress path is through the wood, you should be okay. If the stress is through the epoxy, it will fail sooner or later.
Glass or fibre-filled epoxy is another thing ENTIRELY, and can be quite strong when properly applied.

Epoxy is a waste of time.
All it will do is make a mess of the acrylic and not properly bond to the white oak.
You need a mastic type product.
Consider 3M, 5200, SikaFlex 291,292, etc.
5200 is available at Home Depot or any decent marine chandlery.

You can use epoxy, but for most applications I'd think about using a couple screws or bolts to secure a wooden handle to plastic.
