Wood Identification

I was able to obtain some large blocks of wood. There are three blocks I cannot identify. I have attached 2 pictures of each. They are quite heavy. The wood in pictures wood 1 and 2 calculates to about 50# per cubit foot. The wood in pictures wood 4 and 5 calculates to about 61# per cubit foot. The wood in pictures wood 3 and 6 calculates to about 73# per cubit foot. I was hoping that with the pictures and the weight someone with a lot more experience than me can identify them.

Thanks

Wood 4 & 5 look like Sapele. Wood 3 & 6 look like Bubinga. No idea on the first ones, though.

They all look like Mahogany of some type. I think the first one is Spanish Mahogany
