I think the two on the right are reconstituted veneers – in other words man-made fron dyed, chopped up poplar. Very popular in Europe.
One on the left could be wenge. One next to it possibly red gum. Not much more then guesses really, but somewhere for you to start Googling.

That’s two for Wenge on the left. I’ll go with that for now. These come out of a veneer pack from Lee Valley.. so looking online at that it doesn’t sound like anything should be reconstituted.. but who knows.

Thanks Arron
