Thanks for the feedback, this might be starting to gel a little.
On the magnet front:
-I haven't figured out how to have them double sided and still stick.
-There would be a lot of magnets 9x9x2.
-The magnets would be countersunk or inset inside the parts (labor alert)
On the tray front:
-Don't need magnets.
-Removes the need for the 81 square inlay board. The trays show the play
On the piece storage front:
-A set of 9 trays that each hold 9 stacked pieces (2.25" thick stack). Can
be attached to play board but increases the play arm reach to 25".
-Having the trays separate might make it easier to play...

>> 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?
