Default SMD soldering

Hiyee,
As above...I wanna try soldering SMD stuff...but I've no PCB production facilities...as SMD requires quite few parts ( In my design) I've seen people prototyping with a blank piece of PCB and a scapel (small kinife) to cut and isolate small pads...I'm wondering how to solder these small parts and any tips I might wanna try??

It's not very hard if you have a good pair of tweezers and a small tip on the soldering iron.

The tricky part is prototyping as you describe it. It may be easier if you use some Vero-board or something.

The pcb below is soldered by hand with simple means.

Why don't you prototype with hole mounted parts first and then make a pcb with SMD parts. That's what I do if there are equal parts hole mounted-SMD.

I'm sure there are some suitable SMD prototype boards on the market.

on smc, i would cut out a piece of perf board the siz of a dip chip, take the smc component and solder conecctor wires on the smc pins, then to th outside of the veroboard where you have mountd pins. then you can trat it like a dip chip

There is a good tutorial on SMD soldering in the June, 2000 issue of the Encoder, a publication of the Seattle Robotics Society.
