#1 could be vertical grain redwood. It looks like a conifer.

#2 carcass feels like birch, but it might be a mixed piece since the drawer fronts look like several species like birch, walnut, and mahogany.

#3 headboard is mixed species. Looks like a bunch of different ones. I see ash, sycamore, cherry, walnut, and maple for sure.

#4 is definitely mahogany.

#5 is hard to tell. Could be cherry, or stained birch or maple.

#6 Can’t tell much about this one.
