if it's a single baffle... the best you can get... I'm not sure what to call what type of birch that's readily available?

I would strongly suggest avoiding HD because their wood isn't all that great and full of voids you may not see. I got my last birch from a local lumber company. It's actually baltic birch, came in 5x5 ft sheets, ended up buying two.

Yep... even the Lowe's here has better quality lumber than HD

Pine is what I use 95% of the time. That "birch" is pine with a very thin birch veneer.

 

Only time I buy the "birch" is when its on sale for $35 a sheet. It tends to be a little straighter.
