Well, the top piece at least looks like chakte viga (Caesalpinia platyloba, aka bloodheart) and I'll take your word for it on the second piece (as you point out, it sure looks different) but that wood has no relationship to sapodilla (Manilkara bidentata), although with so many common names out there it's certainly possible that my database of 126,000+ common wood names is missing that use. Sapodilla is more pink than red, turns brown with age, and is hard as nails. Chakte viga is more workable.
