Forest engineer test



For a while,
I have prepared for the examination
that fills the requirement
to be a forest engineer
certified by the government.





The examination consists of
written and practical tests.
I pass the first exam narrowly. :)

One month later,
I'll take the practical test.

Well, Miss and Mister, wish me luck. :)

The second double bit


I finished the second double bit making.
Its head has to be made to local blacksmith.
I add some grinding for shape what I wanted.




Its handle is made of the trunk of juniper tree.
I select a knotty trunk on purpose.




Its blade is sharp as knife,
and good hardening.




Someone ask me
what are double bit's practicalities.
No.
My double bit is a symbol
that I point to the heart of forest.





Leather sheath and tassel




closer look...
sloppy hand stitchs...

Cottage roof replacement


Last Friday, slates were replaced
with steel shingles on my cottage roof.




My cottage looks like a hermitage.
I'll have a contemplative disposition. :)




The walls need to be plastered with clay.
And flap of doors will be replaced.




Even though it seems as deserted house,
I feel the peace of mind at here.
I hear word that German beggar philosopher
'Peter' had stayed for few months here.




My two dogs, 'Geumdong-i' and 'Hwanee',
like this place too.
