Topic tags/keywords: comedian tv star fine woodworking cover nick offerman

Nick Offerman, from the NBC sitcom Parks & Recreation, is also a fine woodworker!

He recently appeared on The Letterman show… and was interviewed about him appearing on the cover of Fine Woodworking, Dec 2011, #222… Quite a surprise!

Nick is a fine woodworker specializing in slab tables and other great woodworking projects is also a gifted comedian!
Here is a complete writeup on it as well as a Video of the interview!

I enjoyed it and thought you would too…

I believe actor William H. Macy is also a woodworker.

Cool.

Andy Rooney is also a woodworker. At least he collects wood. In an interview in a woodworking magazine he stated that he just loves to go down to his shop and sit and look at his wood slabs. A piece of furniture never looks any better than the raw wood.

It’s American Woodworker December 1997 Issue 63.

I made a pdf from their dvd of their magazines. It’s a lousy PDF because all that they stored on their DVD is a .JPG of the magazine pages. They didn’t create a pdf like Popular Woodworking, Fine Woodworking or Wood magazine did.

The JPG is light in color but the article is readable. Send me your email in a message and I’ll forward it to you. I’ve got the magazine somewhere in my collection/pile but the DVD was the easiest way to find it.

I love that dude. Strong moustache, too. He seems pretty serious about his hobby.

Dennis Elliott, formerly of the rock band “Foreigner” does some amazing lathe work, I recall seeing large turnings with natural edges. Beautiful work!
