Did you try to make a  tippe-top (flip-over)? One of them surely looks like one.  But the surface and top may be too smooth for flipping.

Tops dancing to the music is always a nice sight.

Nice lathe work!
The key to a flip over top is the balance point must be very low.  Notice that your top leans over when stopped.  A flip over top will rest with the stem straight up.  2 ways to do this are: A thinner finger stem to make less weight up high, Or adding metal to the bottom. (top after flipping)

The outer surface should be a sphere. I do not know how accurate the sphere needs to be.
