Before starting to attach the ICs with latches and tranceivers for the keypad and the display I felt it was best to put those two together first.
Not being bound to the flat surface of a PCB I decided to have the display floating a bit above/behind the keypad and put at an angle.
It turned out quite well. I think I'll keep most of the "cat-whiskers" and the edges of the display, it looks almost Art Deco in design. Maybe just trim them down a bit so they're even.
By pure luck the center of gravity ended up so the unit it stable and dosen't fall over, but I had planned to attach some rest/leg at the back of the displays going down to the table. Probably is a good idea to do that anyways.
