"Parks and Recreation's" Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman)

Looking for a Ron Swanson bobblehead doll? All you need is a "man saw" and a whole lot of moxie.

In the exclusive video above, Nick Offerman, who plays Swanson on the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation" (Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET), takes us inside his wood shop to build a bobblehead of his beloved character. Reminder: "Don't forget the nasal labial fold!"

But joking aside, Offerman takes woodworking seriously. In HuffPost TV's recent interview with the actor, he talked at length about the Offerman Woodshop you'll see here and he spoke in a video in that post about the high honor recently bestowed upon him by Fine Woodworking magazine.

Swanson fans will no doubt be glad to learn that the "Parks and Recreation" finally returns with new election-themed episodes (which executive producer Michael Schur discussed here) on Thursday, April 19 at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Bradley Whitford guests as a city councilman, and yes, we're counting the minutes until we see that "West Wing"-style walk-and-talk. Check out stills from the episode below.
