BURNSVILLE, MINNESOTA, AUGUST 30, 2014 – American Workshop is proud to announce that its original owners and management have repurchased the business. Nearly 18 months ago, the original owners sold American Workshop to an investment group. As of August 12, 2014, the company was repurchased, and the original management team has been reinstated.

Sam Watts, Co-Founder of American Workshop, reflected his team’s excitement about being at the helm at American Workshop in a recent statement: “We are very excited for the future of American Workshop. We have a lot of big plans that we will implement within the next couple months.”

American Workshop is a woodworking workshop that is open to the public. Guests can come and work on their own projects using the professional tools at American Workshop, or guests can learn more about woodworking in one of the instructor-led classes.

The current management team looks forward to continuing the tradition of giving woodworkers in the area a safe, professional atmosphere to work on their projects without the expense of costly shop tools. More information about American Workshop can be found at
