Like the person I met - "she", not "he", incidentally, and one of the
very few really good hackers I've met - who made her own multilayer
PCBs, from scratch. When I expressed astonishment, she explained the
process in enough detail that I found it believable that she was
actually telling the truth. (Basically just paint a thin layer of
fiberglass+epoxy, plate it with copper, paint with resist (by hand,
heat transfer, photoresist, whatever, to taste), etch, paint another
layer, plate, etc, repeat to desired layer count. For plated-through
vias (necessary for a multilayer board to be useful), drill before the
appropriate plating run(s).)

Labour-intensive, yes, but killer hack value. :)
