Newbie turning plane knobs

Tom MacGregor
>I picked up a used Jet mini-lathe dirt cheap & managed to successfully turn some handles for three old garage sale socket chisels. This looks like it could be way too much fun - as if I don't have enough projects going on already! Does anyone have any tips or tricks I should know about to try turning some plane knobs out of well seasoned rosewood? I plan to practice first on some sugar maple - not too difficult to come by in Vermont.
