RJ Spomer

RJ Fine Woodworking

"Creativity and function blend together with personality --making the art piece unique and lasting."

RJ Spomer loves the challenge of turning his personal vision into pieces of artwork that will be treasured for generations. He designs each "RJ Piece" to function beautifully in people's lives, to be esthetically pleasing, and to last for years of everyday use. Each design is structurally sound and includes a finish that is beautiful as well as long lasting and easy to maintain.

The tradition of creating fine furniture has inspired RJ for more than thirty years. The artist began his career in design and construction, and has evolved into his current business of creating functioning works of art. RJ loves the tools and craftsmanship of previous generations of furniture builders. His workshop is filled with tools that date back to the late 1800's and were originally designed for craftsmen working in Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, Victorian, and Mission styles of furniture. RJ loves refitting these tools and the sense of tradition in using them to create unique contemporary works of art.
