- 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 carbonized and 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.
- How can I tell which version of control box is on my UPLIFT Desk?
You can quickly check to tell which version of UPLIFT Desk's control box you have on your desk by looking at the silver label on it. If that sticker says v4.1, v4.2, or v4.3, you have the newest version of the control box, which comes with a few new features.
- What features are on the version 4 control boxes?
UPLIFT Desk's new version 4 control boxes come with a new Collision Sensitivity safety feature. This lets users set the sensitivity to one of three settings for their desks, so when adjusting for height the desk stops when it touches an object, instead of raising and lowering, which can cause accidents with nearby objects. Keypad Lockout is another exciting new safety feature. Keep unwanted hands from adjusting the desk when this feature is activated. And toggle quickly between One-Touch and Constant-Touch modes with the press of a few buttons, in addition to being able to toggle between inches and centimeters on the keypad. If you want more info, read our blog post on the subject!
- What is the deal with three-stage frames? Do I really need this?
UPLIFT Desk frames are three-stage vs the traditional two-stage frames on the market today, which means their desks are a whole 33% faster to adjust thanks to using 3 spindles instead of just 2. Users of three-stage desks have a higher adjustability range so desks fits shorter users and even kids, all the way up to very tall users or those who plan on adding a treadmill to their setups later.
- What are these "dual motors" I keep hearing about?
All UPLIFT Desks come with a dual-motor design, so each leg gets its own motor. This makes UPLIFT Desks quieter to adjust, stronger, more reliable, and safer than desks with just a single motor. Don't forget the little details when choosing your dream desk!
- 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.

I am impressed with the quality of this desk. I didn't want a stand up desk that only moved my PC up and down. I wanted access to the whole desk. The construction is solid and very sturdy. The bamboo wood is very high quality. This is the best stand up desk on the market, by far.
I just put the desk together last weekend and have 3 days use on it so far. Maybe too early for a review? I don't think so. It is literally the exact desk I have wished for, for years. Previously, I had been using a Walmart desk that I added a hunk of MDF to the top of to make it bigger and added risers for my monitors. This Uplift desk is just beautiful and functional. Pre-drilled holes were great. Instructions left a little to be desired, but I'm a handy guy so I can figure things out (placement of under-desk items didn't match my desk). This purchase was well worth it. I got the powered grommets and the advanced cable management (mostly for the cable tray). This desk puts a smile on my face to use, truly. :)
I got the 60" bamboo top with the curved edge and black legs and 2 grommets. The look is modern and clean. I also bought a black desk pad to go on top. The edge has a scratch already (everyone in my family denies scratching it), so I'm not sure how it happened. I'm thinking belt buckle rubbed against it as it was going up? Not sure, so be careful with your desk.
I also have 2 monitor arms. When you have 2 arms and 2 grommets, you are limited as to where to clamp the arms and still have the monitors meet in the middle. I shifted the arms a little to the right (ie there is more desk space to the left of the left monitor than the right monitor, so the arms cannot be perfectly centered on the desk due to the grommets). Just something to keep in mind as you are configuring your desk.
I also got the half circle "drawer" as part of a complimentary package that came with my desk. The front curve of the desk meant that the drawer couldn't be placed all the way to the far side of the desk (it has to be placed closer to the middle of the desk) in order for it to align with the front curved edge when the drawer is rotated to the "closed" position. This would have been good to know in advance. If you are getting the half circle drawer, you may not want to select the curved edge. It is workable, but if I had known this in advance, I would have not chosen the curved edge. This is harder to explain in words, but if you saw a picture, you would understand immediately.
I got the 72" bamboo top stand up desk with the TR1200-DT3 walking treadmill and am very happy with both.
Before buying, my biggest concern with the desk was that it would be too wobbly at standing height, especially with the 72" width and my dual monitor arm setup. But I haven't had any problems with wobble. This desk is solid - you have to bump it pretty hard to get it moving.
The desk top is very smooth. Great for writing. Overall, it feels like a lot of work went into the design.
I also got the 1-Touch Digital Memory keypad, and highly recommend it.
Great desk and the sustainable 6 ft bamboo top with the black frame is a hit in the office, everyone wants one ! It is nice to be able to switch from sit to stand without a hassle. I recommend the memory option, coworkers will be using your desk when you are not around and you want to be able to get your ideal settings back quickly. As a safety director I am very happy with the desk and even happier I was able to test it for our offices. A co-worker told me his son has a reinforced version at home to support three monitors. Many options and a very sturdy desk, we will likely buy more.
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.
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.

-Solid & thick beautiful bamboo wood
