Fans of the television show Parks and Recreation may have caught this awesome scene at the very end of season 5, episode 14, where character Ron Swanson rips out a wall sconce and forges wedding rings from the metal in a cast iron waffle maker.

“Any moron with a crucible, an acetylene torch, and a cast iron waffle maker could have done the same. The whole thing only took me about 20 minutes. People who buy things are suckers.”

The character of Ron Swanson is played by Nick Offerman, who is an accomplished woodworker in real life. According to Offerman’s Wikipedia page, the writers of the show added a fondness for woodworking to Offerman’s character.
