And please ask with any questions you have along the way. Others want to do this also, and it's really pretty easy and cheap once you get the hang of it.
If you get to Minnesota, stop by any Friday evening at Kilian's Robot Shop of Horrors.

I got 72 PCBs for about $210 so they were less than $3.00 each.
I would recommend their $26.00 DSS panel which is 6.3" x 3.9"
