Bet a section of 2 inch steel pipe, fuller a stem into it a couple of inches from the top. flare and dress the top half and flatten and dress the bottom half.

There is this really cool tinning compound that is real expensive but absolutely amazing. you paint it on with a brush, heat it up till is goes from flat, throught bubbling, to shiny, and wipe it off. with practice it will tin the whole surface nice and shiny. Also, if you fuller the stem down tight enough, the tinning compound will fill the gaps and seal the bottom.

no welding needed.
Sorry the drawing is really crude. talk to some of the copper smiths for the powder info. The gent that demo'd it to us said he paid about a hundred dollars US for a tub the size of a squat salsa jar, but that it has lasted him years.
