Nestled among the glamour of Tinseltown is a testament to American elbow grease and an honest-to-god hard day's work: Offerman Woodshop. Captained by woodworker, actor, comedian and writer Nick Offerman, the shop produces t only fine handcrafted furniture, but also fun stuff - kazoos, ukuleles and even moustache combs. This book takes readers behind the scenes of the woodshop, both inspiring and teaching them to make their own projects. There are projects for every skill level, with accessible instructions by the OWS woodworkers as well as gorgeous colour photos (Nick calls it wood porn ). There are also writings by Nick offering recipes for both comestibles and mirth, humorous essays, odes to his own woodworking heroes, insights into the ethos of woodworking in modern America and other assorted tomfoolery.
Author information: Nick Offerman is an actor, humourist and woodworker. He is married to Megan Mullally and they live in Los Angeles, California, with their poodles.
