Nestled among the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown is a testament to American elbow grease and an honest-to-god hard days work: Offerman Woodshop. Captained by hirsute woodworker, actor, comedian and writer Nick Offerman, the shop produces not only fine handcrafted furniture, but also fun stuff kazoos, baseball bats, ukuleles and even moustache combs. Now, Nick and his ragtag crew of champions want to share their experiences of working at the Woodshop, tell you about their passion for the discipline of woodworking, and teach you how to make a handful of their most popular projects along the way. This book will take readers behind the scenes of the woodshop, both inspiring and teaching them to make their own projects and besotting them with the infectious spirit behind the shop and its complement of dusty wood-elves.

Review:

Praise for Good Clean Fun

"Good Clean Fun has helped me discover new ways to have fun in the shop...If Offerman's goal is to expose a wider audience to the world of woodworking, he's hit the nail on the head. The guidance is sound and presented in a much more entertaining manner than you'll encounter in other woodworking books. Good Clean Fun may be the first woodworking book that's actually fun to read."--Woodcraft Magazine

"Offerman offers detailed projects, shop tips, and tricks, wider reflections on his career and craftsmanship...Offerman really loves wood. By the time you're finished, you will too."--Popular Mechanics

"Part memoir...part technical guide (which provides instructions on how to build fine pieces down to the very inch), and part spiritual guide (there's zen-like life lessons to take away from crafting something with your hands)."--Esquire

"This book is sure to fit nicely in your library and next to you, in your wood shop, whether you are just picking up a new hobby or looking to dive into a career of carving and turning wood."--Design*Sponge

"A witty woodworking tutorial."--Country Living

"Woodworking craftsmanship cannot get more fun than this."--BookPage

Book Depository hard to find
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. After two New York Times bestsellers, Nick Offerman--woodworker, actor, comedian, and co-host of NBC's crafting competition series Making It--returns with the subject for which he's known best--his incredible real-life woodshop. Nestled among the glitz and glitter of Tinseltown is a testament to American elbow grease and an honest-to-god hard day's work: Offerman Woodshop. Captained by hirsute woodworker, actor, comedian, and writer Nick Offerman, the shop produces not only fine handcrafted furniture, but also fun stuff--kazoos, baseball bats, ukuleles, mustache combs, even cedar-strip canoes. Now Nick and his ragtag crew of champions want to share their experience of working at the Woodshop, tell you all about their passion for the discipline of woodworking, and teach you how to make a handful of their most popular projects along the way. This book takes readers behind the scenes of the woodshop, both inspiring and teaching them to make their own projects and besotting them with the infectious spirit behind the shop and its complement of dusty wood-elves. In these pages you will find a variety of projects for every skill level, with personal, easy-to-follow instructions by the OWS woodworkers themselves; and, what's more, this tutelage is augmented by mouth-watering color photos (Nick calls it wood porn). You will also find 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. Whether you've been working in your own shop for years, or if holding this stack of compressed wood pulp is as close as you've ever come to milling lumber, or even if you just love Nick Offerman's brand of bucolic yet worldly wisdom, you'll find Good Clean Fun full of useful, illuminating, and entertaining information.
