Here is one of my latest project on making a different type of clock. First two pictures are inside/outside to highlight the timbers and finish and show how it will look up on the wall. (please excuse the rough pieces of timber I used to make a stand for it)
Timbers used to represent the strings are Hoop pine with Brigalow/Gidgee in between, from there to the outside – Hoop pine – Spotted gum – Sydney blue gum – Silky oak.
I have used small pieces of Tom Russel Mahogany to represent the guitar string tighteners (please someone let me know what they are called)
The back of the clock shows how the wall attachments are offset, and the strips of Hoop pine are attached for two reasons – 1 To stop warping of the clock – 2 To keep the clock mechanism off the wall when attached.

Gorgeous. I really like how you used contrasting wood for the strings! I also like the wall attachments serving a dual purpose. Clever, clever.
