    Don't know about 9X9, but had a # of 6X6" that were not all the same... There could be differences in the thicknesses of board & baffle heights, and minor outer size differences...

    I just started making nice ones of my own when a woodworker I knew use to let me scavenge his scrap bin for nice cherry covered plywood (that had been used to make office furniture for the Getty center) but I'm at the bottom of my stash (enough to make a few more boards)... :-(
