I know this is subject to many variables, not to mention "trade secrets", however ..... What is a "ballpark" height for the finished tone bars on an F5 with a Sitka spruce top?
I started around 0.5" height and a thickness of about 0.25" for the bass and 0.20" for the treble. I've worked the bars down to where they are highest in the middle and tapered down to the ends (quickly the last 1" or so).
Both my bass and treble bars are now at around 0.35" height in the middle. About right? Hopefully not too short, or I'll have to find all the shavings and glue them back on.
