Wood ID Please

I want to an estate sale and there was a lot of wood there. I asked how much and the guy said that I could have whatever I liked for $20. I loaded up. The thing is that I don't really know what I have. All of my previous projects have been pine or construction lumber.
I would like to try my hand at some cutting boards for some beginning "real" projects. Thanks in advance!

Most of it


Some specific piles I tried to sort

Looks like s pretty decent score for 20$. The two bottom pics look like red oak to me, possibly white oak. The top right pic looks like it may be cherry. Some of that looks kinda thick. If it is I'd Dayton did real good for cheap. I very well could be wrong on my ID but from pics that's my guess.

The bottom picture second from left is red oak. The rest could be either red oak or white oak.

The last couple pictures are oak. I see some maple and plywood in the big pile. There might be some walnut in the fourth picture.
