Publisher's Summary

After two New York Times best sellers, Nick Offerman returns with the subject for which he’s known best - his incredible real-life woodshop - in a program that includes five original songs.  

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, moustache combs, even cedar strip canoes.

Now Nick shares his experience of working at the woodshop with his ragtag crew of champions, tells you all about his passion for the discipline of woodworking, and teaches you how to make two of the woodshop’s most popular projects along the way: a Pop Top bottle opener and a three-legged stool. This audiobook will take you behind the scenes of the woodshop, both inspiring and teaching you to make your own projects while besotting you with the infectious spirit behind the shop and its complement of dusty wood-elves.

While working on their projects, listeners can also enjoy exclusive original songs by Nick and his pal Jeff Tweedy - “Music to Sand By”, “American White Oak”, “Raising the Grain”, “The Lazy Carpenter”, and the title track, “Good Clean Fun”.

Good Clean Fun also includes writings by Nick, humorous essays, odes to his own woodworking heroes, insights into the ethos of woodworking in modern America, and other assorted tomfoolery, all imbued with Nick Offerman’s brand of bucolic yet worldly wisdom. 

*Includes a Bonus PDF with Drawings, Visuals, and Original Song Lyrics.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

"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)

Awesome

Hilarious and educational writing. I want to re-listen immediately after finishing. Highly recommended for woodworkers and Offerman fans.

Great title presented well

The author presents the material in a fun and sarcastic classic Nick Offerman style. The material itself was great, but I have to say I loved this as an audiobook; if it were not I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much. The fact that if it were read by anyone else, or read rather then listened only things holding me back from a 5 star rating along with of course wanted more! I’m not exactly sure what more is, but I was left wanting it.
