    1" Thick Bamboo Stand Up Desk

    We offer more types of desktops than any of our competitors. From tried-and-true laminate to scratch-resistant Eco wood to sustainable bamboo to reclaimed wood, no one else takes the care to responsibly source the highest-quality materials for desktops.

    We avoid using harsh agents and chemicals in finishing our desktops, protecting not only your desk but your indoor air quality as well.

    The Three-Stage Desk Frame Advantage

    You deserve a height adjustable desk that can take you to the highest levels of productivity and comfort. Luckily for you, UPLIFT three-stage frames come with a larger height adjustment range, which fits more users.

    Many height-adjustable desks have only a two-stage frame, so they're limited in their height adjustability. Don't settle for anything less than what helps you achieve ideal comfort at work with a frame that lifts higher and descends lower with our UPLIFT Desk height adjustable desk frames.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. I know that the 1" thick bamboo and 1.5" thick premium bamboo desktops are different thicknesses, but is that the only difference?

      You picked up on the obvious difference, which is the thickness. Now let me tell you about some of the more subtle differences. Both desktops are made of 100% bamboo. The 1" thick bamboo desktop is made from UV-cured bamboo. It is available with or without a curved center cut-out and will ship in 1-2 business days. The premium, 1.5" bamboo is made from fully matured Moso bamboo, which is denser and has a beautiful vertical grain core. The edge of the premium desktop is where the beauty of the bamboo really shines through. It is cut in a chamfer style, which means the top portion of the edge angles into a 90° edge.

    2. What is the difference between the bamboo you offer and the bamboo offered by your competitors.

      While some companies feel okay about offering a 3/4" thick bamboo desktop at a premium price, our bamboo desktops are 1" thick and still beat our competitors' prices.

    3. Is this a bamboo veneer?

      Our bamboo desktops are made from 100% solid, pressed bamboo. You won't find us selling a wood veneer product because we want to offer you a quality item.

    4. How will my bamboo desktop hold up over time?

      Even though bamboo hails from the grass family, it is 40% harder than oak and will provide a strong and durable work surface. At a whopping 1" thick, your bamboo desktop won't sag under the weight of your desktop items even if you decide to go for a 72" wide desk.

    5. What color is the bamboo desktop?

      Our bamboo desktop can be described as a yellowish-brown honey color. Since each desktop is composed of 100% real bamboo, each will be unique and contain pleasing variations of color.

    6. Is this 100% solid bamboo, or if I cut it open will the desktop be hollow inside?

      You are more than welcome to perform a science experiment and cut open your brand new desktop, but then you wouldn't be able to enjoy your UPLIFT desk! Instead, just take our word that this is 100% solid bamboo through-and-through that has been pressed together to form a stunning desktop.

    7. Is there a protective finish on the bamboo desktop?

      The bamboo is sealed with a toxin-free clear coat that will help protect your desktop and keep it looking beautiful.

    8. Your 1" bamboo desktop is almost as cheap as your laminate tops, what's the catch?

      Bamboo is a species of grass, and as you know from having to cut your lawn weekly, grass grows at an alarming rate. Therefore the bamboo that is harvested to make our bamboo tops is pretty readily available as compared to our reclaimed or solid wood desktops and we can offer you a beautiful, durable desktop at a low price!

    9. Can I order a custom-sized or shaped bamboo top?

      To keep our prices low, we only offer the 1" thick bamboo tops in standard sizes. If you are interested in a custom top, our customer service specialists can help you order a custom 1.5" thick premium bamboo desktop or laminate desktop.

    10. Does the bamboo scratch easily?

      Bamboo is a durable surface, however it is not unscratchable! You will want to care for your desk gently instead of using it as a cutting board in order to ensure years of use.

    11. Where do you get your bamboo from?

      Our bamboo desktops are crafted from Thai and Chinese bamboo.

    12. How should I care for my bamboo desk?

      To keep dust from gathering on your desktop, wipe it down with a microfiber towel. For a deeper clean, all you should need is a towel with warm water and gentle soap.

    13. Will my desktop crack if I drill into it to mount my desk accessories?

      No! Bamboo is a durable material that will hold up well, even when you drill into it to mount your keyboard tray and CPU holder. But please double check that the screws you are using are no longer than 1" thick! We don't want you to accidentally drill through your desktop!

    14. Will I be able to assemble this desk by myself?

      Attaching the frame to the desktop can be done by one person. However, you might have to order some pizza so that your friend will come over to help you turn the desk right-side up after you put it together! Check out our video showing just how easy it will be to assemble your UPLIFT Desk.

    15. Can I order a sample of the bamboo desktop?

      We don't offer sample pieces of the 1" thick bamboo desktop, however you are always welcome to come on down to our Austin showroom to see all of our beautiful desktops in person.

    16. How smooth is the operation of your UPLIFT desk?

      Seeing is believing, just watch our video to see how smooth the operation is on all of our UPLIFT Desks. Our advanced, one-touch keypad makes it even easier to go from sitting to standing. Just press a button, sit back, and watch your desk do all of the heavy lifting.

    17. Are guide holes pre-drilled into the desktop?

      Yes! We have pre-drilled guide holes into the desktop so that positioning your frame on your desk will be a breeze.

    18. Why does UPLIFT use three-stage frames?

      UPLIFT Desk frames are three-stage vs the traditional two-stage because it makes them faster to adjust thanks to using 3 spindles in each leg instead of just 2. A higher and lower adjustability range fits shorter users and even kids, all the way up to very tall users or those who plan on adding a treadmill to their sit-stand workstations down the line.

      A Steal!

      Posted by Uplift desk on Sep 12th 2017

      The base model of this desk would easily fetch 1000 dollars at Herman Miller or Steelcase but here at uplift it's a little under 500. I purchased the 60 inch bamboo top with a white based and I'm very happy with it. The base seems to be powder coated with a matte finish, very nice and durable. I thought the bamboo top would be a laminate with mdf but I was totally wrong. I will be buying a second desk soon!

      This is a game changer for the typical 8 hour desk job

      Posted by S. Jess on Aug 3rd 2017

      I honestly never write reviews, but this product warrants one...

      I've been using my Uplift standing desk for about one month now and I can not say enough great things about it. I went with the standard bamboo finish and it is absolutely beautiful-not to mention durable, sustainable, waterproof and antibacterial! Very nice quality! The grounds crew put it together for me in a couple hours and it is amazing. I went with the monitor mount option and they work great; functional, stable and easy to maneuver. I also got the swivel stool which I am absolutely in love with. All day long, I am aware of my posture, my core, and can wobble around when I am starting to feel antsy! I love, love, love my new setup and feel like it suits my constant need to be moving around and adjusting position. Our whole department now has Uplift desks.

      Definitely opt for the modesty panel; keeps things private and conceals cords for a clean and neat space.

      Uplift customer service is fantastic and easy to work with. The first modesty panel I ordered unfortunately came a little warped from shipping and Uplift replaced it without any issues. Delivery of the desk was prompt as well, within one week.

      Thank you so much for completely revolutionizing my work experience.

      The pictures do not do it justice.

      Posted by Daniel on Jul 4th 2017

      I just finished setting up this desk and it is truly gorgeous. The bamboo is super sturdy and everything from the top to the frame is super well built. Very happy with this desk.

      Simple, Sturdy, Supreme

      Posted by Andrew K on May 18th 2017

      I've had this thing since about Oct 2016 and have been loving it ever since. I bought a large one (72 x 30in), which is great. It fits my 3 monitors, bookshelf speakers, mini-itx PC, keyboard, mouse, soldering station, etc, and still has room. It doesn't wobble any noticeable amount. The programmable height panel is great. I usually switch between my sitting and standing setting ever hour or two. Love it!

      Overall, I love it!

      Posted by Amanda on Feb 21st 2017

      I've been using my desk for about 3 weeks so far, and it's great! It's so nice to be able to stand up when I'm sore from sitting, and sit down when I'm sore from standing. It makes a work day much more enjoyable!

      The setup is pretty straightforward, but having some power tools and an extra pair of hands will definitely make the process quicker and easier!

      I've run into a couple problems so far, but nothing major.

      First, the bamboo top came with a couple dings and one rough-looking corner. However, I was more excited to start using the desk than I was bothered about the slight cosmetic damage, so I decided not to contact customer service about replacing it.

      Second, the advanced keypad occasionally doesn't work right. It seems to not remember my saved height settings and will move the desk to some random height, or all the way down. However, if I press the button for the desired height again, it usually corrects itself.

      So I've had a couple issues, but they aren't a huge deal to me, and I would definitely buy the desk again. It's great for the price, and I highly recommend it!

      Uplift desk is fantastic. Had a minor problem with a couple defective screws, service was responsive in sending me new ones right away. Uplift is great all around product and service.

      Works Great!

      Posted by M in Seattle on Feb 8th 2017

      I am very happy with my Uplift desk - the bamboo top with ergo cutout is very nice when paired with an under-desk keyboard and mouse drawer.

      Assembly was straightforward but needed good quality tools and some hand strength. The assembled desk is very stable and looks great. Now if I could just get my kids to stop playing with the buttons... ;-)

      Works well

      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.

      Pros: 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)

      Cons: 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.
