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, 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.… (more)

Some funny parts, and some nice stories. ( )

2 stars in this case is probably more about me going outside my preferred genres than about the quality of this book. ( )

I would put this book as a good gift to those who are interested in woodworking, be it from complete beginner to seasoned expert. Contains stories about who works in the Offerman Woodshop, guide to all the machines you would find and use, and some intro projects to try on your own. ( )

This is a great book for anyone who is interested in woodworking and craftsmanship. The only downside is that many of the included projects rely on expensive equipment that few of us small timers have space for or can afford. Of course, that won't stop me from doing what I can with a circular saw, hand drill and belt sander! ( )

I admire his interest in woodworking, but this is a book that you would want if you were going to set up a woodworking shop at home. It's not that interesting to read otherwise. ( )
