Use as high a speed as possible, drill press, carbide bit, gentle feed
rate. Don't have a drill press? Get one.
A must one of those drill press mounts for a dremel style rotary
tool would be great for PCBs, with the high spindle speed.
The circuit is simple enough that you can simply draw the traces onto
a piece of board material with a permanent marker exactly as in the
schematic, then etch it yourself. No fancy layouts are necessary.
Just orient your components as in the diagram & drill the holes in the
board material. Then use the marker to draw in the traces.
Make sure the marks are thick and black.
