The specifications say Philippine Mahogany, but further research indicates that it is probably "light Maranti"
Here is what I found:

"Philippine” mahogany is a trade name applied to numerous different species of the genus Shorea. These species are common in the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. Other trade names associated with the species are meranti, lauan and balau. Balau is the name usually applied to the species with heavier and tighter grain. Meranti can be sold as light meranti and dark meranti. Dark meranti is more dense and deeper in color than light meranti."
