R.J. De Cristoforo's Profile
I have been an artist, designer, maker for over forty years. My primary media has been wood. I have also worked with typography, photography, music production/engineering and other various media. I am a self professed geek/nerd and have worked with Macintosh computers since 1984.

Commissioned pieces, however, are a different matter and following guidelines and plans certainly fall within my skill set.
Almost all of my non commissioned work is made from found/recycled material. In Oregon an abandoned walnut and maple desk provided material for five pieces and recently three discarded teak benches and my wife's old dinning room table and chairs…
