The bamboo is cut with the grain running horizontally across the template. Extra space is recommended between detailed, heavily engraved designs to avoid warping during cutting. For more information on spacing out designs read this blog post

Very nice warm colour that also takes stain evenly.

Due to the fact that this is a laminated panel engraving can be a little uneven.

While it is a solid product, one side does appear to be a smoother finish and this will likely be the side engraving and cutting is done on.

If you're raster engraving, it's best to use a dark grey, or black. Lighter greys get lost in the grain of the material.

I also recommend that you outline your raster engraving with a red or green vector engraving. This adds an extra pop and definition.

The grain will run across the horizontal direction of your template for all P-sizes (just like it's pictured). I believe this is true for all wood materials.
