Any reason why you didn't go for the traditional approach with one-sided boards, namely, components on top, traces and solder on the bottom? It is easier to solder than the way you're doing it.

Hmm I don't know why I did that way but thank you for pointing that out, it should make things easier!

Of course, you have to remember to flip the design over before you mill it, or, if you forget, like I often do, mount the ICs on the bottom. :)

To help de-blur the PCBs I just use a brush over running water.

The ability to make your own SMD to DIP adapters is very handy - an ATtiny1634.
