Hi Charles,
what you describe has been used in VK for a while now, described (and
used) by Drew Diamond VK3XU - he is a master of this style of
homebrewing and has published many articles over the years (and 2
books) - some construction articles are available in .PDF format from
the website
http://www.wia.org.au/links/ go to AR mag page and have a look around.
Well worth the effort for inspiration!

Hi

I was wondering how to make a pad for the chip then thought use a
piece of PCB with a cut through the copper in the centre and then
additional cross cuts of the copper to make the lands for the
holder.

By bending out the legs of the holder they can be soldered to the
pad.
