Second LED lamp board

From my comments on the flickr post:
All hand-routed this time. The more I get familiar with the particular board layout, the less the autorouter impresses me.

[The second image is] with jumper in place. I laid it out as to use a 1206 zero ohm resistor, but since I hadn’t ordered any, I just put a piece of 24 AWG wire in place.

Either I didn’t etch long enough, or I smudged the toner resist, or I just got too greedy, because the area where the ground connects through needed some work with a knife to properly separate the traces.

I’m thinking of going to doing double-sided boards and making the bottom side just a ground plane and doing vias to the ground plane below. All I need is suitable drilling equipment (cheap drill press thing for a Dremel and appropriate bit, maybe) and to figure out some kind of easily removable resist I can apply to the backside.
