Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, along with Oholiab, was appointed by God to build the Tabernacle in the desert, during the time of Moses. God gave the two men every skill needed to do any work necessary. They oversaw the workers, and made the curtains, the poles, the loops, etc.

Bezalel also built the Ark, the two Cherubim, and all the accessories for transporting the Ark, and overlaid everything with gold. He made the lamp stand, the altar, and all the utensils, and completed everything for the Tabernacle. Bezalel made all that the Lord commanded.

And with him was Oholiab, of the tribe of Dan, who was an engraver, designer, and embroiderer in blue, purple, and crimson yarns, and in fine linen.,[1] 37, 38). The name Bezalel means "in the shadow of God."
