The common expression is "if these walls could talk", we thought "what if these walls could sing". Construction truly started on every BeamBox a century or more ago when a tree was cut down and processed by hand and axe from log to timber. Each beam then proved itself as a titan of structural support for a century or more. Today we are harvesting these beams, incorporating modern technology, and producing the coolest, most historically significant speaker you could ever own. The materials it is constructed of, to the hands that built it, and the rock, pop, and soul you may play through it. Everything about the BeamBox makes it an American artifact.
Why we want to create:
Inspired by a love of music, the constant need to turn it "up to 11", a cabinet maker's skill set, and a desire to do something completely different. Zack Jester decided it was time to share some of his ideas with the world. To do so ClawHammer Co. was formed. The goal of the company is to inspire a deeper appreciation of the American Maker, their skills, and the high quality goods they produce. The goal of this Kickstarter Campaign is to make this possible by requesting your support to help aid the launch of our first in house product line of home audio equipment.
Why the BeamBox is different:
The choices of home audio systems available today are endless, but how many out their function at a high level and provide a unique, truly quality aesthetic? Our state-of-the-art wireless Bluetooth speakers are housed in cabinets constructed by hand from centuries old wood reclaimed from barns. Few things compare to the beauty of wood that has aged naturally decade after decade, and we felt that there was no better way to incorporate its aesthetic and history into the home than through something you could enjoy and appreciate on a daily basis.
The BeamBox is about good sound, it's about history, it's about making your home a more enjoyable place, and it's about starting conversations.

The Other Rewards
Risks and challenges
As with any new venture, the biggest risk is investing time, money, and heart into a project without funding or sales. As this goes live, our craftsmen have already spent hundreds of hours fine tuning the size, thickness and makeup of each BeamBox. We have also spent time and funds sourcing the wood and electronics, but we do this with confidence that our designs will come to market. KickStarter is a great opportunity for us to perfect our design and bring these systems out to the public eye so they and what they stand for can be appreciated. Here at ClawHammer Co. we view each day as an opportunity and we intend to rise to the challenge. Thank you in advance for your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
