finial size

Kenny in Indep
>Need help for size of a finial to put on top of a cupola. Every body has a wind direction vane on a cupola, but since I enjoy making sq. wood round, Iím thinking of a turned finial. The finial needs to start with a 4 Ĺ to 5-inch sq. to cover the top of the roof material. The cupola is 30 inches sq. at the roofline, the base is26 inches sq., right at 26 inches high at the top of the roof. About how high should the finial be from the top of the roof? Thanks for your help and all the advice found on this site
