My Toucan wooden clock is ready!

I finished the clock and now is part of the decoration of my living room. She is a beauty Sonrisa

I think that what made me more happy was the comments from Clayton Boyer after I send him the pictures and the video of the clock finished:

 

“…

Aloha Carlos, you do not know how much joy it brings me to know that I have helped make another builder so happy.  

My whole mission from the very beginning has been to spread to other woodworkers that joy that building these wonderful mechanism has brought to me.  

Your Toucan turned out wonderfully.  Thanks so much for the video link, and the nice email.  

I am SO Happy to read that you are a "very happy guy."

Aloha.  Clayton

This is the video I post in YouTube

 

I had to make the dial 6 times as I damaged it in many ways while learning and making mistakes. It is not easy to work the wood in large pieces and multiple milling jobs. Anyway I am very happy with the results.

This is a video of the machine milling the last dial:

 

The other part required a little bit of home engineering was to build a small machine to wind the coil for the electromagnet that drives the pendulum:

Now I am planning my next project for my CNC!
