I believe that the fourth pic is mahogany. It shows the striped effect of the spiral grain that is characteristic of mahogany. The stripes are caused by the angle of the vessel elements (water conducting cells) changing each year so that they reflect the light differently and show the striped effect. I am not sure which board is featured in the fourth pic, but I believe that at least one of the boards must be mahogany.
