RBF: Made my first reel seat, hardware and all

Recommended Posts

New to this site, but wanted to show off my latest project. I built a threaded barrel, mortised insert reel seat, including all the hardware for a rod I am building. Here are a few pictures.

I machined all the hardware from brass bar stock, and the insert is marble wood. Here are a few in process pictures.

Thanks for Looking.
