I was born and raised in the small town of Bisbee which is nestled in the Mule Mountains of Southeastern Arizona.  Bisbee is world renown for its turquoise, commonly referred to as Bisbee Blue.  As a young boy, my father would bring this turquoise home from the mines.  While I thought that these stones were pretty, little did I know that 40 years later I would be incorporating this stone into my woodwork.
