Default WoodLine Wood Gear Clock

I am getting ready to make the Wood Gear Clock from Wood Line (one of the reasons I was looking for my drill chuck).
The plywood in the wood pack is Walnut.
Some of the gears and arbors are turned or routed from Hardwood.
I would like to use wood that will stand out but not overpower the walnut.
I have thought about Bloodwood, Purple heart, Canary wood but not sure.
any ideas or suggestions?

Hard or soft Maple would contrast very nicely with Walnut.

Reddish woods like Brazilian cherry also make a nice subdued accent against walnut. Yellow heart is easy to work with and should be less than canary wood.
