Brigham's first job

Brigham left home when he was 16. He went to work as a carpenter, and his first task was to make a bed from an old, water-soaked log. An impossible task? He measured, sawed, hammered, scraped and notched until he had a beautiful bed frame.

He became a fine craftsman. Some of his furniture and mantle pieces are in museums in New England today.
