Consider what was state-of-the-art before PCB.  Hand-wired point-to-point
with plenty of tie points and laced cables.  I've got to admit that some of
the old chassis are downright artistic.  Of course, before that, it was
wring things up with #14 bus wire on a slab of pine, with inductor cores
boiled in beeswax.

Cheers,
Chuck
