Lesson 6: Applying Construction to Everyday Objects

I tried to use the ellipse template when I could but because of the limit in size and degree, so a lot of the time the foreshortening wasn't what I would've liked.
Regarding the globe, after putting down the main sphere I didn't see much use in extra boxes so that constructed ended up being more loose. I'm not sure if that was the way I should've gone about it or not.
Lastly I have a question about my second drawing in particular. I tried to draw a glass (there's a photo of it at the end) that's an octagon at its base, then becomes a pentagon and then finally becomes a circle at the top. The issue I had was that I didn't know how to construct an equilateral circle or pentagon within a plane. The octagon I drew from dividing the plane into thirds had unequal thirds and I more or less had to guess the pentagon. How would I go about constructing equilateral shapes within a plane?
