Fine Woodworking on the David Letterman Show
It’s not too often that a late night television host would have reason to mention–even momentarily–the art and craft of woodworking. The chances of a sawdust-related conversation between David Letterman and a comedian who I consider to be one of the funniest on television these days are even more miniscule.
Enter Nick Offerman, or as many of you may know him from the NBC sitcom Parks & Recreation: Ron Swanson.
Nick is not only a gifted comedian able to use a seemingly deadpan stoicism to get you laughing, he’s a hell of an accomplished woodworker who specializes in slab tables. What’s more, he’s also the author of our current cover story on how to Level Big Slabs in No Time Flat (FWW #222).
Nick was a guest on the David Letterman Show last night and brazenly attempted to sell Dave a rather expensive cedar strip canoe. OK, I’m kidding about the strong-arm sales tactics but the two did gab about all-things-wood, and Dave even broke out a copy of the current issue of Fine Woodworking magazine. Below is the full segment courtesy of CBS. Enjoy!
