Welcoming Nick to the Workshop
Before he gained fame as Ron Swanson, the head of the parks department with a penchant for woodworking, on the hit NBC show Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman clocked a lot of his time in workshops—first as a set builder in Chicago and Los Angeles, and later as a custom furniture maker. Nick brought a special tool from his woodshop to try to stump the guys in a round of "What Is It?" for a recent episode of Ask This Old House.
