Fine Woodworking on David Letterman? Sort of.
Some of you might recall a visit Fine Woodworking editor Asa Christiana and I made to the Martha Stewart Show last winter. We were there to take part in a special episode dedicated exclusively to woodworking. It just so happened that Parks & Recreation co-star Nick Offerman was also appearing on the show that day and met up with Asa backstage after the show. Nick is a pretty serious woodworker, pro actually, who specializes in slab tables built in his LA workshop with the help of a few part-time staffers. He’s also on the cover of the latest issue of Fine Woodworking (#222) for his article on a super cool slab-levelling jig for the router.
Anyhow, Nick is set to appear on Late Night with David Letterman this evening (October 28, 2011) and we’ve gotten word that he’ll be chatting, at least in part, about his recent appearance in the magazine. We’re tickled pink and to celebrate, I’m releasing this video tour of Nick's shop a couple of days early.
Nick is definitely the real-deal and when you see his “slab storage room” in the video…well…if you’re at all like me, your lower jaw will drop a good 8 to 10 inches.
You can watch Nick’s appearance on David Letterman tonight at 11:30pm (EST) or catch it later online.
That’s one small step for woodworking….
