I use this method when I need to make a PCB that's simple, proof-of-concept, and quick. This method is generally restricted to making through-hole component PCBs. I don't usually like to use veroboards because in my opinion, they look ugly most of the time. For more complex, professional looking boards, I normally use the toner transfer method.
The good thing about this quick method is that it still looks decent on the top or component side.
I've looked around Instructables and found a very similar method to mine, but different enough to be significant.
Similar to Real Elliot's Instructable, the key ingredient in this method is, ironically, a veroboard.
