A trembleur is a French excercice from the XVIII century. The woodturner has to turn a long and thin piece using a “steady” and “string steady”. It’s not only a technical exercise but also helps to study the different renaissance shapes.
In this demo, I turn a trembleur 60cms (about 23 inches) long and explain why I use only 2 tools: bedan and detail gouge with 2 bevels.
