Nick Offerman is often tied to his hyper-masculine, outspokenly libertarian character Ron Swanson, a role he played on seven seasons of NBC's "Parks and Recreation." And though Offerman has distanced himself from the fictional character, they do share a mutual passion: woodworking.

In his latest book, Good Clean Fun: Misadventures in Sawdust at Offerman Woodshop, Offerman explores the love of his craft and profiles his own shop in East Los Angeles.

Still, many of Offerman's fans continue to turn to him nuggets of Swanson advice, particularly in this heated election season. In response to this, Offerman recently said that "Ron has no love of career politicians. But he would certainly vote for Hillary over Trump, if he had to chose between the two. Or he would write in Merle Haggard or Willie Nelson."
