about us.

Lowell Innes founded American Woods in North Dakota's Red River Valley, with a steadfast focus on quality materials and customization. Over the years, Lowell Innes' entrepreneurial spirit led him to create several successful businesses, from building homes to outfitting them with his own cabinetry. In 1982, Lowell opened his woodworking company, American Woods, in his lifelong hometown of Grand Forks, North Dakota. With vast open land and endless farm fields, it's a place where people like to work and everyone waves at you from their trucks. "It's a great place to have a family and put down roots," says Lowell.
