Buy an old cast iron restaurant table base. Clean it thoroughly with warm water and a scrub brush. Dry & coat it with olive oil.
Buy a 17 3/4" wood round top & trace the braces on the underside. Mark & drill pilot holes for the screws to avoid splitting.
Sand well with 120 Grit Paper. Drill a 1" hole for the spout. Stain & give 2 coats with Polycrylic. Install it on the base.
