Hardwoods with Heart
If you're new to the solid wood game, it can be confusing why so many people get excited at the mere sight of a nice cut of genuine hardwood. UPLIFT Desk's selection of tops were carefully chosen because of each hardwoods unique characteristics, and we think it's fitting to shine a light on some of the best features of each. We'll start with Acacia:
Acacia - Comes with a beautiful grain structure; its eye-catching swirls of light and dark wood make for a dramatic piece that simultaneously intrigues and relaxes the mind.
Natural Ash - This durable wood features a light-colored look and comes with an open grain that suits most office styles.
Walnut - Used in furniture construction, this fine-grained hardwood boasts a deep, warm color that draws the eye adds a striking touch to work spaces.
African Mahogany - One of the newest additions to the UPLIFT family of hardwoods, this rich, red-hued hardwood features an interesting interlocking grain and a beautiful top sheen.
Pheasantwood - Like the black and golden figured patterns of a pheasant's tail, Pheasantwood tops boast jaw-dropping wood grains, and come with a square back with a front barkline edge (or barkline edges on both the front and back on 80" desktops).
Measuring it at a full 1.75" compared to 1.25" that a lot of desk manufacturers sell, when you buy a solid wood desk from UPLIFT Desk, you'll have the heavy duty desk you need to handle even the heaviest of setups, from 355 lbs on their 2-leg desks all the way up to 530 lbs on their 3-leg and 4-leg desks. A built-in support system underneath with a team of steel support bars prevent breaking, bending, or warping, which is important in areas with different relative humidity.
Sustainable Solid Wood Desktops
Mother Earth is the designer of the desktops, and we take the time to thoughtfully keep the characteristics of each type of wood. All wood is sourced by sustainable methods, and then sealed with sealants that contain no VOCs, you can be sure you're working at a desk that's with you for the long haul without bringing dangerous chemicals into your work area.
And for each solid wood desk that UPLIFT Desk sells, they'll donate five trees to plant in a national park through their partnership with the National Forest Foundation. This is work you can feel good about on more levels than one.

Once your desk is assembled to perfection, you can accessorize to your liking with accessories like monitors arms, keyboard trays, and ergonomic chairs! With desks from UPLIFT Desk, you get to customize it, all the way down to the heavy duty casters.
