Does this look like mahogany?

These have been in this building for the twenty years that I have been here. Its one of those building that just isn't visited very often and a long time ago I believe I was told this wood was mahogany.

The block on the right is 31 1/4" x 11 3/8" x 4".
The block on the left is 31 1/4" x 8" x 4 1/4" and there is a 1 3/8" square piece cut out on the left side.
The 2 pieces in the middle are 48 1/2" x 3 1/4" sq.
The post in the 2nd pic is 5' x 3 1/4" sq.
& the block below the post is7 1/2" x11" x 4".

Not sure what I'm gonna do with it but would help to know what it is.

Sure looks like it, the dust will taste a little bitter, should tool like a dream, hands will get a bit black after extended handling.
