Does this recipe for a mid-late 30's D-18 style rosette sound right to those of you who seen a few?

Inner ring
0.020" Black maple

Middle ring - .140" total b/w/b/W/B/W/b/w/b
0.040" b/w/b
0.060" w/b/w
0.040" b/w/b

Outer ring
0.020 Black maple

Greatly appreciate any thoughts.

That should work, their really all over the place. A somewhat rule of thumb for spacing is .100 from the edge of the sound-hole for your first ring, from the outside of the first to the inside of the second ( your "9") .100 and from the outside of the second to the inside of the third .115

Do any of you know the width of the purfling used on 1930's D-18s?
It appears from images I've found that the inner black is thinner than the W/B/W

W/B/W/b
