Marquetry is the art of assembling thin slices of wood to form an image.

He is a juried member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough, New Hampshire. He is a participant in the Monadnock Art Open Studio Art Tour held annually on Columbus Day weekend. You can learn more about the art of marquetry on his website at http://craigaltobello.com.
