Kaatskill Woodturners Meeting November 12
What: KWA meeting
Where: Opdahl Building
When: Wednesday November 12, 2008 at 7:00 PM
Who: Mike Kross will present a program on how to turn a trembleur.
What is a trembleur? It is a long turning with beads separated by very thin sections.The thin sections must be consistent along the whole length. When done properly, a trembleur is a marvel to observe and play with as it will shake and tremble with the slightest touch.
This is a technical exercise to improve your turning skill, but your work can also create a beautiful piece of art. These are unique, unusual and are a ton of fun to make. The challenge of turning something just beyond your skill level is a big part of the joy of turning.
Trembleur is French for a very shaky and unstable thing.
