Inscription.  Skilled craftsmen like woodworker Henry Dinwoodey learned to adapt their work to the softer woods and different conditions that existed in Utah. They imitated the styles of the eastern hardwoods and even marble in native pine, aspen, cottonwood, and box elder, by using a faux finish to paint and grain their products. Dinwoodey built his first shop in 1858, a primitive board and batten structure.
