Nick Offerman — star of Parks and Recreation, Tumblr icon, wood-working aficionado, and eater of all the bacon and eggs you have — made the following video showcasing the amazing amount of work that went into crafting his new self-help guide, Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living.
On top of acting, Offerman is an accomplished carpenter and owns Offerman Woodshop. You can head to their site to learn more and buy yourself a handy-dandy mustache comb, a kazoo, or a nice walnut desk.
Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living is about:
“Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson? Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking (he runs his own woodshop) Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman’s childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois (“I grew up literally in the middle of a cornfield”) to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor, and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally. It also offers hard- bitten battle strategies in the arenas of manliness, love, style, religion, woodworking, and outdoor recreation, among many other savory entrees.
A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessons and rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety, Paddle Your Own Canoe will not only tickle readers pink but may also rouse them to put down their smart phones, study a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.”
