"I would like Americans to make things with their hands. Thomas Jefferson and I feel that makes for a much stronger nation."                                     ―Nick Offerman

"You know, even working actors can end up having a lot of spare time. And you can either go sit at the Starbucks and wait for your agent to call you, or you can go learn how to build a Shaker blanket chest with hand-cut dovetails."                   ―Nick Offerman

Nick Offerman is People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2012: Mustache Edition, and best known as a star in the acclaimed NBC series Parks and Recreation, for which he received the Televison Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy. His numerous television and movie appearances include roles in Will & Grace, The King of Queens, The West Wing, George Lopez, Deadwood, in Childrens Hospital, 21 Jump Street, and The Men Who Stare at Goats. He most recently was in the FX series Fargo, for which he received a Critics' Choice Television Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Movie/Miniseries.

Offerman is also a professional carpenter. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Megan Mullally, where he spends his time off-set running the Offerman Woodshop, where he builds canoes, dining room tables, and mustache combs.
