- What is the difference between the 1" thick bamboo desktop and the Premium 1.5" thick "Solid Wood" Bamboo?
Other than the obvious difference in thickness, the standard 1" Thick Bamboo Desktop is made from UV-cured bamboo while the Premium Bamboo Desktop is made from fully mature Moso bamboo. Our standard bamboo desktop is stocked in the warehouse and available to ship in 1-2 business days. The Premium 1.5" Solid Wood Bamboo Desktop is built to order and will take 10-12 weeks to craft.
- What's the difference between UPLIFT Bamboo Desktops and those of your competitors?
Our UPLIFT Bamboo Desktops are 1" thick while most other companies offer a 5/8" thick Bamboo. A thicker bamboo desktop makes for a more solid desk overall.
- Is this veneer or solid?
Our bamboo desktops are solid, laminated bamboo. We do not sell desktops with a wood veneer.
- How durable is the bamboo surface?
Bamboo is 40% harder than oak and provides a very strong, durable desktop surface. Our UPLIFT Bamboo Desktops are a full 1" thick, so you won't have to worry about a larger desktop sagging under the weight of your monitor.
- How would you describe the color of the bamboo?
UPLIFT bamboo desktops are crafted from 100% real bamboo, so the actual color can vary from tabletop to tabletop as with other species of wood. Bamboo desktops typically take on a yellowish-brown honey color.
- Is this 100% solid bamboo?
Yes, this desktop is made from 100% UV cured bamboo that has been pressed together to form a durable desktop.
- Does the Bamboo have a "finish" on it?
We finish our bamboo desktops with a standard "clear coat" but nothing more. The clear coating is toxin-free and will keep your desktop low-maintenance and looking great for years to come.
- Why is the 1" Bamboo Desktop almost as cheap as the laminate tops?
Bamboo is a species of grass, the world's largest species of grass in fact, which means it grows very quickly and is available in large supply. So, the materials necessary to make the bamboo tops are much more readily available than the materials needed to make a reclaimed or solid wood top. We strive to bring you the best quality of product while maintaining our low prices.
- Is this real bamboo?
Yes, our tops are crafted from 100% bamboo that is pressed together to form a solid desktop.
- If I cut this open, will it be hollow inside?
If you cut this open, you will only find 100% bamboo through and through.
- Can I order a custom-sized or shaped bamboo top?
At this time, we only offer the bamboo tops in standard sizes. If you need a custom top, you may be interested in a laminate desktop which can be customized.
- Is this desk susceptible to scratches?
The bamboo is solid and sturdy, but you will want to care for the desk gently in order to ensure a beautiful desktop for years to come.
- Where is the bamboo for the desktop sourced from?
We use Thai and Chinese bamboo to craft our 1-inch thick bamboo desktops.
- Will it hurt my desktop to drill into the bamboo in order to mount accessories?
No! Bamboo is extremely durable and you can drill into the underside of the desktop without damaging your desk. Just make sure that the screws you are using are not longer than the thickness of the desk.
- Is bamboo easy to care for?
Yes! Caring for your bamboo desktop is a breeze! Just wipe off dust with a microfiber towel or use a soapy, damp towel for a deeper clean.
- How easy is assembly of an UPLIFT desk?
Take a look at our video and see for yourself! You should be able to assemble your UPLIFT desk in a few hours. You will just need the help of a friend to set your desk upright after assembly.
- Can I order a sample of the bamboo to try before I buy?
We do not offer samples of our 1" bamboo desktops but you can get a sample of the 1.5" premium bamboo by ordering our Solid Wood Sample Kit.
The UPLIFT Standing Desk with 1'' Thick Bamboo top is available in several standard sizes. All desktops are 30 inches deep and vary from 48'' to 80'' wide.
Looking for a smaller desktop? The UPLIFT Space Saver Desk has our most popular desktops in 24" depths.
Choose between a standard rectangular desktop or a curved shape with a center-cut out for your UPLIFT Standing Desk.
Frame Color & Style
The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Standing Desk frame comes in three color choices: black, gray, and white, and is offered with a cast-molded aluminum foot for extra stability.
Finding the right height preferences for you at your new adjustable height desk can be revitalizing. Another benefit of using a standing desk is the ability to sit in a more ergo-friendly position for your body, ideally with your keyboard and mouse on your lap or within your Neutral Reach Zone. This is different for everyone, but UPLIFT's height range of 24.5'' - 50.25'' means that it will work for 99% of the population!
Most height adjustable desks on the market are stabilized with a two-stage frame, which has lower minimum and maximum heights, limiting your ability to adjust to your perfect height if you're taller or shorter than average. UPLIFT's three-stage frame goes both lower and higher, giving you the ability to adjust your desk height even more so you can keep working comfortably whether sitting or standing.
Our competitors offer height extensions at a premium, while ours comes standard when you choose an UPLIFT adjustable height desk. Invest in a desk that will uplift your office for years to come, helping you and your coworkers to reach the highest peaks of productivity.
UPLIFT Desks come standard with a basic Push and Hold Two Button Up/Down Keypad, or you can upgrade to the Advanced 1-Touch Keypad with 4 Memory Positions and Digital Height Display. Its digital readout allows you to make precision adjustments to get your desk to exactly the height you need, then auto-dims to save power. Once you find the perfect sitting and standing heights, four programmable memory presets allow you to save those and then return to them with just one touch of a button.
Choose to add wire grommets or in-desk power to your desktop. Wire grommets allow for clean and organized through-desk cable routing, or upgrade to the UPLIFT Power Grommet to add two in-desk power outlets to each grommet hole so you can power all of your devices while keeping them close at hand.
Grommets are located fifteen inches from the center of the desk, to the left and right. We've found that this allows for the best combination of cable management and accessory use. The wire tray included in the UPLIFT wire management kit was designed to fit between the grommet holes, while still allowing you to mount a full keyboard tray track and modesty panel. Upgrade one or both to UPLIFT power grommets and have a convenient place to plug in your task light, phone, or anything else you need to keep nearby.
Wire Management Options
Advanced Wire Management Kit
The Advanced Wire Management Kit is a complete cable organization system for your height-adjustable desk. We developed this kit after years of desk installations. Our main goal was to help you wrangle your cords to ensure that they don’t get in the way of your desk moving up and down. It's a proven way to easily manage all computer and electric desk cords, while also tidying up the space underneath your desk.
Advanced Wire Management Kit contents:
|Wire Management Tray||Attaches to the underside of your desk to discreetly house the 6-outlet surge protector power strip, wrangle your cords, or hold small accessories|
|Cable Coil Organizer||Consolidates your cords using the included wire funnel, bundling them in one neat package from desk to wall|
|Adhesive Cable Ties||Allow you to easily add and remove cords or components through re-adjustable straps that can be attached to the underside of your desk|
|6-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip||Provides protective features and flexibility, with 180J of surge protection, an integrated 15-amp circuit breaker switch, ABS-resistant housing, ten feet of 14AWG heavy duty power cord and a flat plug|
|Under Desk Hook||Offers a place to guide or hang cords on the underside of your desk|
Clamp-on Surge Protector
The optional UPLIFT Clamp-on Surge Protector with 2 USB ports clamps onto desktops up to 1 3/8" thick, or clamps onto desk frame ends for use with thicker tops.
The UPLIFT Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of four - two for each leg. They can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but are easily unlocked when you need to roll the desk.
Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5'' of height to your desk.
When using a sit-stand desk, we recommend mounting your computer beneath your desktop to prevent cables from being stretched and pulled out of their ports when moving the desk from sitting to standing positions. An UPLIFT CPU Holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space.
Please note: mounting options are limited when pairing this with a 48" wide desktop. Please refer to our blog article, which shows the possible configurations. If you still have questions, please give us a call and we would be happy to discuss it with you!
UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray
An ergonomic keyboard tray gives you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk and also relieves the strain caused by over-reaching to type. The UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray comes with one, 27'' wide surface for your keyboard and mouse to sit side-by-side.
UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray
For those who prefer more flexibility, the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray comes with two surfaces: a 19.75'' wide platform for the keyboard and a separate 9'' diameter surface for the mouse. The mouse platform can easily move to the left or right side for ambidextrous mousing, and is also depth adjustable.
UPLIFT Track Spacer
Add an UPLIFT Track Spacer to either keyboard tray to allow you to mount the track over the center crossbar rails on your desk, allowing for better desktop support on wide desktops and full keyboard tray retraction on 24'' deep desktops.
Adding an UPLIFT Desk Modesty Panel & Cable Management will give your UPLIFT Desk's minimalist design an extra level of privacy. This modesty panel easily attaches to your desktop, traveling with it as you move from sitting to standing height, and features a mesh pocket for convenient wire management. The UPLIFT Modesty Panel, available at a discount when bundled with your desk, will help increase under-desk privacy while maintaining your desk's clean, open design. It is available in different lengths to correspond to your desktop.
UPLIFT Half Circle Desk Drawer
For a little bit of extra storage, add an UPLIFT Half Circle Desk Drawer at a discounted price when bundled together with your desk. This half-circle-shaped, swiveling drawer easily attaches to the underside of your desktop via a central mount and pivots in either direction, rotating out to give you quick and easy access to smaller accessories that you don't want cluttering up your desktop. Featuring pen and pencil trays, a notepad slot, and storage compartments, the 13.6" W x 7.4" D x 1.3" thick UPLIFT accessories drawer will help keep your height adjustable desk cleaner and more organized.

Let me start by saying, my Neurosurgeon, said because of my sedentary job I should get a sit to stand desk. Therefore, I got the 72"x30" 1" thick bamboo ergo cut desk. I received the desk in several boxes. They were very heavy. When I opened the boxes, I checked inventory and everything was there. I did have one grommet which was broke (More on that in a minute). Instructions were easy to follow. The desk is good quality. The legs themselves have substantial weight, but also good quality. I'm not a very handy person. However, with the instructions, and rereading to ensure I was getting it right, I was able to build the entire desk within 1 to 1.5 hrs. Now about that grommet. I called customer support, explained my issue, and they had me send a picture of the broken grommet. They sent a new grommet without question and I received it about a few days later. Great Customer Service! Great Desk! I'm extremely happy with my purchase.
Fine desk. Get the floor pad.
Posted by Unknown on May 23rd 2017
Great desk. Indestructible. Coffee, clamps, stacks of stuff -- all solid and good. It is actually so tough that mounting the control box is hard without pre-drilling the mount screws.
The floor pad is brilliant and essential. I stand 8 hours at this no problem (age 64), but would have a tougher time without the pad. The four position control is easy, and fine even if you only need two positions. Steady enough that the huge monitor does not wiggle too much.
The cord hiding trays are nice. The utility trays were worthless. Sent 'em back.
Finally, you have to be careful raising and lowering the desk, since it moves to position once you press the button. Any overhanging papers or stuff accumulated underneath the desk that is too high will create memorable crashes. Had a few; the unit was fine.

This is a good desk for anyone serious about getting a new desk, even if they aren't particularly looking for a standing desk. The chair combo deal is also pretty good and could potentially save you a decent amount of money. I looked at many different brands of standing desks before I decided on this one. I do not regret that decision. A little pricey but it should last a long time and looks great.
-Pre drilled holes
-Solid & thick beautiful bamboo wood
-Adjust-ability for sitting and standing
-Easy to assemble by hand without power tools
Excellent quality! Easy to assemble!
Posted by Leo on Sep 27th 2016
So worth it! Screams quality and it was surprisingly easy to assemble, everything fits and works just fine. Highly recommended!
easy to assemble
Cons: Nothing that I can think of
Posted by David Yates on Sep 3rd 2016
After owning my Bamboo desk now for 4 months, I'm still enjoying it. The only misleading thing about purchasing it was that it seemed like you had to purchase the locking wheel casters. I love them on my wood floor, but the desk does come with stationary feet. So if you plan to sit the desk on carpet there really isn't a necessary purchase.
Things to keep in mind
Lift control - The lift adjustment control can go on either the left or the right side.
Examine everything before you assemble. Delivery guys dinged a couple of my boxes, but nothing was damaged.
I also plan to keep the desk LEGS box since it really the only thing that may break on this desk that would be hard to return. The legs contain the actual motors that lift the desk up and down.
Table top - It's nice looking solid piece of wood and seems to be pretty durable.
Power strip - Get the power strip (see picture barely shows behind the white cup on the desk) that attaches to the back of the desk, it's really nice and allowed me to have one plug that goes to the floor that plugs into my UPS.
Cable organizer - really nice. It attaches with screws and adhesive. I've loaded mine up with cables and it's holding nicely to the bottom.
UPLIFT Grommet Hole - I find left and right holes helpful for running cables (see picture white cable for phone power on left and my laptop cables on right)
Cable ties - The cable ties with adhesive back that come with the desk don't stick to the bamboo very well. Most of mine have come undone and I've replaced them with Velcro straps that I've run under the metal support beams that run the length of the desk. I had one drop to the floor and it was pretty hard to pull it off, so that's why I think it's the bamboo surface.
Monitor Arms - I do not recommend Human Solutions monitor arms. They work, but they are too stiff when trying to adjust the monitor height.
