Nick Offerman stars on NBC’s Thursday night comedy, Parks & Recreation, and also runs a professional woodworking shop in Los Angeles. He grew up working on a farm in Illinois, but his devilish wit led him to the University of Illinois, where he studied acting and set design. Later, in Chicago, he traded his scenery-building services for small parts in plays, and those finally brought him to L.A., where he would eventually land his role as the deadpan Ron Swanson in Parks & Recreation. When the camera stops rolling however, Nick heads for his shop, where he and four part-timers turn out beautiful furniture from slabs of distinctive wood. Be sure to check out his recent article in Fine Woodworking #222.
