Yes. We had to make them in school when I was working on my electronics degree and building hand-made, discreet component rf amplifiers for school projects.
Basicaly you got a copper covered curcuit board and put tape over the areas where you want the copper to stay (for the runs). You then etch away the exposed copper in an acid solution and you are left with a pcb. You then just have to drill small holes for the components.
Not hard really, but I have no idea what copper clad boards cost these days.
They were cheap when I was in school back when there were dinosaurs.
Wouldn't hurt to look into it for your next project, or just the fun of building pcbs on your own.
Anyway, you did great work with the way you did it. !!
