To add to Paul's expertise, I'd also try to complete the entire project the same day, as the Male will respond to humidity/temp/stress relief much faster than the female.
I do beg to differ on using squeegee'd on CA though if it has very fine details....I only did it once, BUT on super tiny font the CA adhered to the wood TOO well, and was stronger than the wood fibers themselves, and ripped off the tops of the letters completely:( Larger font shown in pic cut ok.
I had MUCH better luck using an extremely thinned brushing laquer, which penetrated Deep, and seemed to give a good stiffness for cutting within an hour on softer pithed hardwoods. Denser woods seem better for use in the Male.
In Tree/Zebra/Vulture board, I used a 60* engraving with good results, BUT I'll probably try a 30* for fine details in the future as it will cut deeper, and less likely to sand through the finer details than with the 60*.
Ya gotta love the process though!
