The pendant is finally done... yahooooo

Finally complete the pendant as it was originally planned. All toooo happy with the outcome. The front label was printed on regular paper using a color laser printer. It was later laminated (top side only) using a lamination machine. The LED holes were punched using the cheap single hole paper puncher... just perfect for the LED holes... The button holes were cut using a circle cutter... the cutter had a minimum hole size of 10mm... slightly bigger than the button but, in the end, it gave a better look to the unit... 3M adhesive spray hold everything flat and permanent... the sides and bottom are covered with black velvet (left over from previous project)... it gave a matte finish and provide good feel when you're holding the pendant...

It is during this kind of moment, I pat myself for being tools collector... I have very strong tendency to buy tools even though I might use it once a year! The hole puncher, the circle cutter and the laminating machine make the whole process very enjoyable...

%^$#%%^$%:-(*:-(*... just realized that the X-Axis LED is wrongly labeled as Z-Axis... arrggghhh... dang....
I'm just gonna leave it as it is... I designed the unit, I know where X-axis led is anyway....
