I purchase some exotic wood blanks in a discount pack. I thought that they would be labeled when I took them out of the pack but they were not. I was able to identify some but not these. Does any one know what they are?thanks for the help in advance

Are these all end grain?

If not, #4 looks like cocobolo.

Yes they are all end grain. I cut a sliver off the end of each block. I can post the block of wood if it helps? They are covered in wax I will have to remove some of it.

Yes, both end grain and clean faces really help!

A good wood ID site (if you have a general idea already) is the wood database
