According to a history of Solomon Angell written by his daughter Phebe Ann, "He was a carpenter by trade, also stone mason, blacksmith, shoemaker, dentist, Presiding Bishop, Notary Public". He did carpenter work on the Kirtland, Nauvoo, Salt Lake, and St. George Temples. Apparently he did the carving and fancy work. He was in charge of carving the first granite stones for the Salt Lake Temple. He also made caskets. Another account in EMIGRANT PIONEER STORIES, "Solomon Angell was frequently and lovingly designated as a master of all trades and jack of none. It seems that he could do anything with or without tools - heavy mechanical tasks or little finicky jobs. He was considered a master workman and was never idle very long at a time.
