Toucan is a wood geared electromagnetic clock. The plans for the clock are from Clayton Boyer and was built using baltic birch for the gears, pine for the base and the dial, walnut for the hands as well as accents on the dial. I used mesquit for the pendulum pivot, rosewood for the weight and a mystery wood for the pendulum bob. The clock is driven by a coil in the base that senses the magnet in the pendulum and drives the pendulum to power the clock. I hope you enjoy Toucan as much as I enjoyed building her.
