Eight are maple, six are walnut, and they'll sit atop a glass globe and a base made by the buyer. I worked off a CAD drawing done up by the other turner, and having several sets of calipers loaned to me to check dimensions as I turned was a real bonus. I'm putting more calipers on my shopping list.
The main lessons I took away from this experience probably apply to all woodworking: Assume nothing, Check everything, and Never work when you are tired!
It feels good to have completed the task and to get a "well done."
