I know this has nothing to do with etching your own PCB but if you're looking for a place to get proto PCBs use OSH Park (oshpark.com). You can get 2 layer PCBs made for $5/sq in ($10/sq in for 4 layer boards) and you get three copies of your board for that price. Turnaround time is about 2 weeks, they are made in the USA, boards look professional and shipping is free. Double-sided solder masking and silk screening is also included in those prices and all pads/holes/vias are ENIG plated.

If you don't want to chemical etch the only real option is milling. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printed_ci ... rd_milling

Not a low-priced option though.
