1. Walnut of some type
2. Depends if it is stained sycamore seems plausible, could be others if it is dense and heavy, then I would think one of the South American tree varieties of red type woods .......... in other words not sure.
3 and 4. Red or Black Oak, could be Red Gum, but that is also an oak.

1. is walnut
2. Without a shadow of a doubt that's sycamore.
3 & 4, my first guess would be red oak, white oak maybe, but I'd have to see the end grain.

Looking where the grain raises through the surface, I would posit that both three and four are of the red oak family. Because of the lack of pinkish color in #3, I would say possibly water oak. Either could be willow oak, also, with water oak very prevalent in the east and willow more prevalent as you go west in the state. I have had more experience with the water oak. The darker grain look of #4 tends to make me think it is not water oak or southern red oak.
