Yesterday’s answer:
A   Made into a table
Master cabinetmaker William Bell Jr. searched through the lumber available at Brigham Young’s Public Works cabinet shop. He needed just the right wood for the octagonal table that he was planning to fabricate for exhibition at the Utah Territorial Fair in 1858. He passed over stacks and stacks of native pine, juniper, quaking aspen, cottonwood, and other softwoods from local canyons. At least he found exactly what he wanted—wood form the wagons that had brought Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake in 1847.
