    I have a CK-22G. Maple and spruce. I like it. My guitar-playing friends have been incredulous that "you can get that much tone from such a small soundboard."

    The resonance should be a function of the mass and the stiffness.

    If you take lots and lots of wraps on the tuner, it will take a long time to settle in.
    Put it through the hole with a fair amount of tension. Coming up to pitch will probably put 2 or 3 wraps on,...

    It's more about stiffness than actually breaking the wood.

    See, for example, corrugated cardboard. Even without kinking it, it's stiffer trying to bend it one direction than at 90 degrees to that...

    Well, it will apply perpendicular force if it's perpendicular to the work. If it's not, there will be some horizontal force applied. Vectors are vectors.
