That's actually a thought I had. Base is 2 1/2" and and top is 1 1/2" flare, the 1" shaft runs through the 2 1/2" to the bottom approx. 3", so it adds even more weight at the bottom when filling. I thought about going 3" on the base, but chose this route instead. It's all pretty heavy and solid. I'm also thinking of mounting it to the column to make sure it doesn't tip over! I've got to play with a few more ideas though. This got me started for right now and helped hone my soldering skills ( or lack of ) some more.
