Final assembly...

Finally... we can assemble the YamPAD and complete the project.
Here's all the parts:

Let's start by adding some rubber feets.

Then the threaded inserts. These are actually for plastics but work great for wood too.
And now the easy part: plate, screws and keycaps.
I really like the contrast between the aluminium plate and the brass screws.

You may wonder why all those different switches: I'll use this numpad as a swith tester to convert my collegues at work :D

Did I mention that it works too?

And now I think we can call this project complete.

Time to sum up the project. What would I do differently?

Design wise:

Regarding materials:

Maybe I'll fix a few of these problems in the next iteration, but for now I'm happy with the results :D
