    I have attached a pic of a portable sign post with a heavy rubber base.
    It is functional, however we are looking for creative alternatives.
    What have you used or created?
    We toyed with the idea of using large decorative flower pots as a mold for concrete but have longevity concerns about the concrete (cracking, chipping).

    Find an old car wheel and a pole that fits through the hub center. Weld the two together.
    Seen it done plenty of times and can be done on the cheap.

    We are doing a fair amount of work with large modern industrial parks and money isn't necessarily a big issue.
    Creative and professional appearance would be their desire.
    CHEAP is not necessarily what we are looking for, but would be a nice addition.
    We are looking for creative and appealing alternatives.
    Sorry if there was any confusion.
