This is my second attempt at a hollow form. Kinda fun to build. The bottom portion is 3 pieces and the top is 2 pieces. The hollow form is maple with just a bit of spaltting. I have no idea what the other wood is. Not real happy with the finial. I know practice practice and the practice some more. Thanks for looking

It looks fantastic to me and the hollowed out section seems to have a round bottom to it, not flat? How  do you hold something like that to finish the outside? How thick is the wall?

i started with a tenon and after shaping and hollowing through a 1-1/4 hole then reversed it and used spigot jaws on the top hole. The wall is 1/4"

I agree, the finial looks like it had one too many cupcakes.
One thing you could try, is to make a finial and/or base before you make the hollow form. Sometimes it's easier for some people to scale or proportion the hollow form to the finial rather than visa-versa.
Just a thought.

Just a suggestion: shape the ball of the finial to match the hollow form.
