PC Board Design
PC board design and parts list for the Mini Halfwave DC driver board

I used a FREE product called  PCB123 downloaded from the PCB123 web site and I have the board's latest design in a file available here for download.  If you want use PCB123 program to order boards, it shows a cost of $8.19 each using the PCB123 program for a quantity of 20. If you order less it costs more. It is a pretty slick program that lets you order them online from  the boards plan. I have not used them yet so I can't give a testimonial for them.
