Building Ham Radio Subway Style. This video shows how one ham (I couldn’t find his callsign anywhere in the video or his YouTube profile) makes prototype boards from bare PCB material and a brad-point bit. As one commenter noted, this looks a lot easier that by cutting islands out of PCB material and gluing them to another board.
