Exodus 35:7 begins the story of Moses instructing the people on how
to construct the Dwelling Tent and all its appurtenances.  It
includes instructions on building the Ark of the Covenant (37:1-9).
The story of the construction ends in 40:33 with the words "Thus
Moses finished all the work."  Of course, he didn't do all the work
himself, as detailed in the account, but he was certainly present
when the Ark was built and when it was consecrated by the presence of
God (40:34-38).
