Very nice! I like the engraved text and carbon fiber surround. Great touches. 
 
Where did you track down a board? or did you make your own?

But where is everyone getting this panel mounted LED?

 

I checked all over mouser, ebay, ect and I couldn't find one that covers the center of the LED and makes it light up in a ring-like pattern.

You're looking for an illuminated metal push button with LED surround, sometimes called a momentary switch

I have had a few boards I bought several years ago and finally got around to building one.

 

The carbon fiber is real, it's a 1mm thick plate that I inlayed into the panel so it was completely flush with the surface. I'm really happy with how well it turned out. When light hits it, it has an amazing depth and "3D-ness" to it.

Check "vandal resistant" buttons on Digi-Key.

It's not an LED, but a Bulgin push-button switch. edit: Hmmm, when I posted this reply, the four posts above weren't there. Strange.

Yah, we need another group buy on the boards... they've become rarer than hen's teeth.

Edit: Thanks, by the way!

 

I'm currently using this: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/HAD15-0.4-AG/179-2306-ND/1634196

 

I haven't decided if I'll build one or not.

Those are Bulgin stainless steel vandal-proof momentary illuminated switches (i.e., Bulgin MPI002/28/BL).  Available in single or dual color, and probably latching, too.  Kinda pricey, but very nice.

No worries, I appreciate all the help.

I checked out eBay and it looks like they have some imitation ones from china for ~$8-$13 as liam was saying.

There are several domestically available switches that look very similar to the Bulgin switches that don't cost as much.

The LAMB series of switches from E-Switch are actually *very* nice. The feel of the actuation is...satisfying, haha.
