How can I turn a coaster brake hub into a fixed gear hub?

I have a 12" rear wheel from a kid's bike (coaster brake hub/wheel) but I want to make it a fixed gear for a chain driven unicycle I'm building. Any suggestions on how I might accomplish this?

You can actually do this internally depending on who made the hub, but the fastest, easiest way to accomplish it is to have a weld shop tack weld the cog to the hub shell. 4 tacks around the perimeter should do it and keep heat to a minimum.

It would be far better for your needs to get a freewheel hub, add a fixed gear, and build the wheel.
