Use #502 PCB engraver on wood?

Hi All! I’m doing some intricate vcarving on my Shapeoko 3 XXL, and at one point thought I saw in a Carbide3D video that the PCB engravers can be good for use on wood. However, I wanted to confirm this, because the softwood default DOC in Carbide Create is 0.006 for the 502.

Thoughts on using the 502 on wood? If so, what recommended cutting params (particularly DOC) and speeds and feeds?

Thanks!
