UPLIFT Special Order Solid Wood Height Adjustable Desk

The UPLIFT Standing Desk with Solid Wood Top is a stunning and rustic way to transform your work for the better

Good news—we're updating this page to showcase features of our new UPLIFT V2 Frame, but it's not quite ready. Thanks for your patience!

Height adjustability? Check. One-of-a-kind? Check. Fully customizable to suit your needs? Double check. Our UPLIFT Standing Desk with Solid Wood Desktop is handcrafted to perfection by our expert woodworker, giving your office the statement piece it deserves, while improving ergonomics at the same time.

Sit or stand with the press of a button - a quiet, electric dual-motor frame does the heavy lifting of bringing your real solid wood desk to the next level. With a motor in each leg, UPLIFT Desks are quieter when raising and lowering, safer, stronger, and more reliable.

This fully loaded adjustable height desk features a frame that is width-adjustable, and can expand and contract to fit various desktops if your future desk needs change. The absence of a visible crossbar gives you more legroom underneath, including space to attach under-desk accessories such as a CPU holder and keyboard tray.

Customize it with your choice of wood, desktop size, and frame color to seamlessly fit into your office's unique style, and see what the raw, rustic elegance of real wood can do to inspire your work.

Our UPLIFT Standing Desk with Solid Wood Tops are made with passion, giving you a desk you can be proud to own. It's available in your choice of over ten different wood options, like ash, maple, pecan, white oak, cherry, bamboo, and mesquite for a truly unique desk that can upgrade your ergonomics and style simultaneously.

Our solid wood tops sometimes have a slight variance either over or under the selected dimensions because of the nature of the wood - we reject any variances over 1/4", but below that amount (either over or under) is within our accepted margin.

And when you buy a solid wood desktop, you can feel good knowing that we'll plant five trees in U.S. National Forests through our partnership with the National Forest Foundation.

Note: Wood Desktops and Dry Climates

If the air in your area is especially dry, your wood desktop could be at increased risk of cracking and splitting. Wood naturally expands and contracts depending on the amount of moisture in the environment, and without enough humidity, the moisture in your desk can evaporate, leaving it vulnerable to warping.

It's a completely natural process, but it's unfortunately something that could affect your new wood desktop. If your desktop does crack or split, we're happy to send you a repair kit to fill the affected areas. If potentially repairing your wood desktop isn't something you're comfortable with, we recommend that you take a look at our Bamboo, Eco, or Laminate desktops instead.

If your desktop has already warped, please click here for instructions (pdf) on using our solid wood desktop repair kit.

Please contact us if you have additional questions.


  1. What is the difference between the 1"-thick bamboo desktop available on the UPLIFT V2 Adjustable Height Desk and the premium 1.5"-thick bamboo available for this desk?

    UPLIFT Desk premium bamboo desktops are made to order, just like their custom wood desktops. The desktop is cut to a 1.5" thickness and crafted from fully mature moso bamboo, which is heartier than the bamboo offered on stock bamboo desktops. The premium bamboo desktop features a vertical grain core with a unique chamfer edge, which slants at an angle before straightening out to 90 degrees.

  2. How is carbonized bamboo different from raw bamboo?

    Carbonized bamboo is bamboo that has been treated and "caramelized" through a heating process. This changes the color of the raw bamboo into a beautiful honey-caramel, yielding a show-stopping desktop you're sure to love.

  3. Can I get this in a custom size?

    Of course—your UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Standing Desk is handmade. After you place your order, UPLIFT Desk’s woodworkers cut your desktop to any size you like, down to the nearest quarter inch. And don't worry: customizing the size of your desktop does not increase the lead time. To get a quote and order your custom size, just contact our sales team at 800-531-3746.

  4. Why isn’t my desk available within a week or two?

    We don't have these desktops waiting for you in a warehouse. Each desktop is crafted by the UPLIFT Desk woodworkers after you place your order. It takes time to cut, finish, and cure each top before they can be shipped out.

  5. Can I pay more to expedite this desk?

    There is no way to reduce the lead time for an UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Height Adjustable Desk because it is custom-made for each customer. If you prefer not to wait, then you may be interested in our selection of quick-ship solid wood desks. We keep these in stock and ship them within 2-3 days of your order.

  6. Are there any other alternatives to waiting several weeks for a special order desk?

    We do have a very limited selection of custom solid wood desks that were cancelled after the order was placed. Please contact our sales team if you are interested.

  7. Can I get this desk with the ergo edge?

    No, the UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Standing Desk is not available with an ergo edge.

  8. The color of my solid wood desktop looks a little different. Are you sure this is the right wood?

    Depending on the species, freshly harvested wood will be a little lighter or darker than its aged counterpart. But do not fret, the color will eventually even out over time.

  9. When should I expect to receive my solid wood desk?

    Because these desktops are custom made, the lead time can vary. Currently, special order solid wood desks take 6 to 8 weeks to be crafted, and then spend another week or so in transit. You can plan to receive your order in about two months.

  10. What is the barkline edge?

    Most of our wood desktops feature squared edges, but cedar and mesquite are available with a barkline option (also known as a "live edge") at no extra charge. The barkline follows the natural curve of the wood, which provides a unique, rustic quality to the desktop that has long been a customer favorite.

  11. Does it really take 6 to 8 weeks for this desktop to ship?

    Yes, these desktops are custom-made and will take the full lead time to be crafted.

  12. Do you chop down trees to make these desks?

    Our solid wood desktops are crafted from harvested wood. When you buy a solid wood desktop, we plant five trees in U.S. national forests through our partnership with the National Forest Foundation.

  13. How stable is the UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Height Adjustable Desk?

    The UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame, both of which are available with this desk, are constructed with contract-grade quality and meet and exceed ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 Stability, Strength, and Durability ratings. These steel frames (with aluminum feet) are reinforced for stability, making for a very sturdy desk with little wobble.

  14. Is the solid wood surface smooth?

    Solid wood may contain some natural imperfections. Our woodworker evens these out with a black or clear filler to create a smooth surface for your desktop.

  15. How should I care for my desktop?

    Caring for your desk requires a little upkeep, just like any other piece of nice solid wood furniture. Use lemon oil to keep your desktop clean and well-hydrated, so that it won't crack or warp. If your desktop gets scratched, you can buff out the scratch using a steel wool pad. All of the items needed to care for your desk can be found in our UPLIFT Desk Care Kit for Solid Wood Desktops.

  16. How heavy will my desktop be?

    The UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Height Adjustable Desktops are pretty hefty. You can calculate the total weight of your desktop using the weight per square foot of each wood species (found in the specifications table).

  17. Will I be able to assemble my UPLIFT Desk by myself?

    You will need an extra set of hands to help you gently lay down the desktop without scratching it and to set it upright after assembly. The rest of the assembly process can be completed by one person; check out our assembly video to see for yourself.

  18. Will my heavy special order desktop impede the performance of the UPLIFT V2 Frame at all?

    Absolutely not! With a total lifting capacity of 355 lb, the UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame are both more than capable of lifting a heavy solid wood desktop. Your UPLIFT Desk will function quietly and smoothly as it raises and lowers the desktop.

  19. What features does the UPLIFT Desk v4 control box include?

    UPLIFT Desk's version 4 control boxes come with anti-collision sensitivity, which is a safety feature that stops the desk if it bumps into an object while raising or lowering. When you add the Advanced Keypad to your desk, you can access even more control box functionality. The keypad child lock keeps unwanted hands from adjusting your desk height. Toggle between one-touch and constant-touch height adjustment modes with just a few buttons. Change the keypad height display to inches or centimeters—which ever you prefer.

  20. What is a three-stage frame?

    All UPLIFT Desks feature industry-leading three-stage frames, rather than the traditional two-stage frames you find on the market today. That means UPLIFT Desks can adjust height 33% faster and achieve a wider range of adjustability. Their desks fit a large number of people, from kids to tall adults. UPLIFT Desks are also great for anyone who wants to use a standing desk treadmill.

  21. What are dual motors?

    All two-leg UPLIFT Desks are designed with dual motors, which means each leg has a motor inside. This makes our height adjustable desks quieter, stronger, safer, and more stable than desks with a single motor driving both legs.

Height adjustability? Check. One-of-a-kind? Check. Fully customizable to suit your needs? Double check. Our UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Height Adjustable Desk is handcrafted to perfection by our expert woodworker, giving your office the statement piece it deserves, while improving ergonomics at the same time.

Customize it with your choice of wood, desktop size, and frame color to seamlessly fit into your office's unique style, and see what the raw, rustic elegance of real wood can do to inspire your work.

    Beautiful Desk!

    Posted by LJD on Nov 15th 2017

    The three-month wait was worth it! The walnut desktop I ordered is just beautiful! I had no problems assembling the desk and it works great. I like being able to store my desk height preferences so, at the push of a button, my desk is right where I want it!

    Love this desk!

    Posted by Colleen on Feb 1st 2017

    We ordered three Uplift Desk with solid wood tops last September for a large home office. We have been using them for the last few months and absolutely love them! Without comparison, these are the best desks we have ever owned. The lifting mechanism is very smooth, and the solid wood tops are a work of art!

    Adjustable height makes it much more comfortable to work long hours.
    Lifting mechanism is very smooth.
    Wood tops look great.

    Bamboo Top on UpLift desk

    Posted by Enrique on Aug 17th 2014

    The table arrived in excellent condition very well packed and without dings of any kind. I can not go further with this review because after a month it still sits in my garage disassembled due to current remodeling. I'm confident that everything looks great so far though. I'll try to update this review as time allows.

    Maple UpLift 900

    Posted by Richard Abbott on Jul 29th 2014

    Fantastic. The wood top and finish is incredible. Very thick, very smooth/straight. HIGH craftsmanship.

    Assembly was straight forward, only complaint was the included screws to secure the top to the base. Most were low quality. They did offer to send me better screws. A quick trip to the home center, for high quality versions did the trick!

    UpLift 900

    Posted by Andy on Jul 2nd 2014

    Installed this desk a couple of weeks ago. Completely satisfied and have decided to purchase another one for my wife.

    Will buy again

    Posted by Andy on Jul 2nd 2014

    Completely satisfied with the desk. More impressive was the buying process, knowledge of the sales and support staff, and attention to detail. It's clear that this company is on a mission to help people. They have found a way to differentiate themselves in a crowded market and stand out as a great company which deserves all the success it achieves. We will be adding a second UpLift 900 in the near future.

    Thank you!

    Cedar UpLift desk is awesome

    Posted by Jennifer on Jun 4th 2014

    I've had this desk for several months now and I could not be happier with it.

    I'm happy to have gotten the cedar top. It's beautiful, and it's solid.

    Assembly took me a couple of hours, but it wasn't difficult.

    Having the PC hanging from one side of the desk was a good choice. Everything raises and lowers together. Very smooth, very easy.

    I got a smaller foam mat to stand on, the kind you often see in kitchens. I stand on it, turn the music up, and I get SO MUCH WORK done.

    I recently broke a toe and spent two weeks sitting down and my productivity went down so hard. I was angry at my coworkers ALL the time, frustrated, and had a hard time getting things done. Now that I'm standing half the day again, things are back to normal. Coworker is annoying? turn up the music. Shake it out. Move on. Get things DONE.

    I LOVE THIS DESK. Stable, functional, and absolutely gorgeous. Never going back!!

    UpLift desk is awesome.

    Posted by Nicholas Zagaroli on Oct 4th 2013

    I bought two of these desks one with a solid wood top and the other with the Mahogany top and cannot say enough good things about the desk or the customer services.
    I messed up the order on both desks, thankfully they caught the mistake in time for customer service to correct them. I had ordered one of the desk with a bamboo top which I didn't read when I ordered it that it had a longer lead time. Thankfully customer service came to the rescue again found a solid hardwood top (mesquite) in-stock all was fine.
    Delivery was quick as advertised, the quality and workmanship are as advertised as well. We assembled them ourselves without a hitch, instructions where easy to follow.
    I had read the articles on sitting and standing I've always had the traditional disk, thought I would give the standing desk a shot; but thought in impractical that I would stand all the time. In my work I spend 80% of time on the keyboard and sometimes that can mean 10-12 hours in front of the computer.
    After a month with my UpLift desk I can tell you that I spend about half my time standing, but the truly nice thing about this desk is that I can have it at whatever height I feel like it, and it turns out that I like to have it at six different height throughout the day.
    After living with the desk, I find myself standing more and more throughout the day.
    Bottom line:
    1. Well worth every penny.
    2. Looks great, especially the Mesquite top.
    3. Best of all I feel better after a long days work.

    The desk is beautiful, and I love being able to sit or stand and have the desk at the perfect height for me.

    It's only been a couple of weeks, but I already know I'm going to spend less time at the Chiropractor's office.

    I assembled the desk myself, and thought one part had the holes misaligned, so I contacted The Human Solution and they helped me figure out what was up ASAP and then everything went together smoothly.

    Great customer service and an amazing desk!
