Wood clock driven by hand-wound electromagnet

Yesterday, we took a look at some gears made out of shapes other than circles created by Adrian Iredale. He has been up to some great stuff lately, which includes building this electric clock based on a Clayton Boyer clock design. This is unlike most of the wooden clocks he makes, in that it is powered by electricity rather than a weight or a spring. The project scores huge DIY points for the hand-made electromagnet that is used to drive the pendulum. Check it out in the video! So cool. I am wondering what triggers the magnet to turn on at precisely the right moment, though...

Here is where you can see more wooden clocks designed by Clayton Boyer.
