This first Master Bedroom , one of two that “This Old Crack House” hosts is part of the new addition project.

It features a walk in closet along with a walk in and walk threw 3/4 bath room with a over sized shower and other amenities.

Besides the nine foot ceilings and lively colors, each piece of bedroom furniture has been designed and hand made in my shop.

One of my favorite pieces in this master bedroom is the custom cherry cabinets that holds the HDTV home theater with surround around sound.

The picture is a Charles Thisell original. I am very lucky to have four of his original oil’s on canvas. I met him a number of years ago while I was at an open house for a client that I had did an office remodel for.

At the time he was really struggling as an artise. He was going through some tough times with his pending divorce and needed to sell some of his art work to raise cash.

I found his art very interesting and purchased four of his pieces .

Later, I had him commission a painting for me. He spent quite a bit of time just hanging out with me and getting to know me as an person. In turn he painted what he felt in part what I was about and represented or how he had and others might see me in life.

That painting is what he came up with.


It remains one of my fondest pieces of art in my collection today.

The following year after that painting he became a finalist and a chosen artist in an national endowment for arts program that included a stipend and considerable exposure with out having to worry about making income in order to live day to day with.

This in turn allowed him to practice his craft freely.

Thank you for asking Diane.

Thank you.

Oh trust me I have missed the “mark” many times in the past.

That said: I can honestly say that is one of the things that has In my opinion made me a better woodworker.

Some one said – “winners never quit and quitters never win ”.

Perseverance in practicing the craft of woodworking along with what ever else in life you choose to do can have profound effects on the out come of what ever you choose to do in life.

Again thank you for the kind words.
