I have been working this week on making my first reel seat, hardware and all. Here are a couple of pictures of the Finished Product. Below are a few action pictures of the process. Started by turning the marblewood insert. All parts machined from brass bar stock The sliding ring. Single point threading the barrel. Threads finished. Relieving the barrel for the reel foot. I think it turned out OK. I learned a lot, and will be able to improve the processes and the end result.
