first i want to say i'm sorry about the quality of some of the pictures 

There are many ways to etch your PCBs from toner transfer to using a sharpie. I found this method by accident one day while I was etching a board. I hope it is nice enough to win the UP! Contest, though I may also enter it in a few others :)

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
Copper Clad board
hacksaw blade to cut the board
Ferric chloride
An etching container
Vinyl tape and
A razor knife.

I personally use a glass peanut jar since most of my boards are small enough to fit in it and the jar holds approx. 32 oz of fluid.
