   Sudoku's a pretty number-intensive game - you're looking at (at least)
81 numbers (plus a few dozen more if he marks up the board the way I do
when I'm working one out).

   Does your friend have good hand-eye coordination? Could you make the
board out of carved laminate whiteboard or painted blackboard?
   (Blackboard paint on a light wood might look super swank if you did the
lines with your CNC engraver technique)
