3D render of PCB in Altium Designer.

Boards ordered and received from OSH Park.

Stencil cut out and prepped for applying the solder paste.

Solder paste applied and components placed.

PCB cooking in the reflow oven.

After much debugging, the board finally works! Red LED indicates protection circuit is active; Green LED indicates each regulated output is active. Multimeter shown is connected to the 8.4V output.
