    1" Thick Bamboo Stand Up Desk

    Bamboo is a beautiful, fast-growing, and sustainable grass most famously found in Asia. Our bamboo desktops are 33% thicker than our competitors, giving you something truly special and still eco-friendly.

    We offer more types of desktops than any of our competitors. From tried-and-true laminate to scratch-resistant Eco wood, 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.

    *Note: Desktop color may vary due to the unique and natural variations in bamboo.

    The Three-Stage Desk Frame Advantage

    You need a desk that can take you to the highest levels of productivity and comfort. Luckily, UPLIFT Desk's three-stage frames come with a greater height adjustment range that fits more users than two-stage frames. They're also 33% quicker to adjust thanks to having three spindles instead of two. And because of their dual-motor design, our desks are quieter when adjusting and are stronger, more reliable, and safer than desks with just a single motor.

    Don't settle for anything less than the best when choosing a height-adjustable desk. We've designed our three-stage frames to provide you ideal comfort, stability, and reliability - all backed by an industry-leading 7-year warranty.

    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 carbonized 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. 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.

    10. Where do you get your bamboo from?

      Our bamboo desktops are crafted from Thai and Chinese bamboo.

    11. 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.

    12. 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!

    13. 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.

    14. 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.

    15. How do I know which version of control box is on my desk?

      You can quickly check to tell which version of control box you have on your desk by taking a glance at the silver label on it. If that sticker says v4.1, v4.2, or v4.3, you have the newest version of our control box, which comes with a few new features.

    16. What features can I expect to get on the version 4 control boxes?

      Our new version 4 control boxes come with a handy 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 and knock over objects. Keypad Lockout is another new 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.

    17. 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.

    18. 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.

    19. 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. Our desks adjust 33% faster thanks to this cutting-edge design. 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.

    20. What are these "dual motors" I keep reading about?

      All UPLIFT Desks boast a dual motor design, which means each leg gets its own motor, making our desks quieter to adjust, stronger and more reliable, and safer than desks with a single motor. This means you can rest assured that yours is the most technologically advanced height adjustable desk you can buy on the market today.

      Fantastic Value

      Posted by Cody Mercer on Jun 12th 2018

      I've had my 72"x30" bamboo top uplift desk for about 9 months now. I'm incredibly happy with it. Between it and a nice ergonomic keyboard, my desk job is significantly less painful.

      Couldn't be happier!

      Posted by Kristin on Apr 6th 2018

      We spent a lot of time researching stand up desks, and finally decided on the 1" thick bamboo curved Uplift Desk. We are thrilled with it's construction and stability - will most likely buy one or two more (maybe a corner version) for our home office.

      Love it and I just got it!

      Posted by Scott on Feb 24th 2018

      I ordered the 48" bamboo stand-up desk and it arrived within a week (which is slow from what their CS says). The desk was super easy to put together, but I'd recommend using a power screw driver with a hex-bit as the little wrench they provide will wear on your hands after the first two bolts. The desk works as advertised and just looks good! I'd give it five stars, but it was delivered with a small two inch gash on the top of the desk; so they need to work on ensuring they're shipping out flawless tops. Luckily it's right where my laptop sites so I don't actually see it.

      Just Got It And Already Loving It!!

      Posted by Tramar on Feb 20th 2018

      I literally just put my Uplift Desk together and I'm already loving it. I was bit worried that the 1' Bamboo would not be thick enough, but it's perfect. It's sturdy with no wobble.

      Wow! Even better than I was expecting

      Posted by Rod G. on Jan 6th 2018

      I've had an adjustable stand-up desk at home for years, and ordered this one for my work. I was really pleased with the bamboo option. I've always like the patterning and warm color of bamboo.

      Upon arrival and opening, I was even more impressed with the look and quality. The edges are especially gorgeous with the bamboo cross-strips.

      Perhaps most importantly, the build of everything seems fantastic. I'm confident this thing will last a long time.

      Great sit/stand desk, sturdy and quick to assemble

      Posted by Chris Demiris on Jan 4th 2018

      I ordered 3 of these. Assembly was painless. There are small differences, but if you read the manual and watch the video it'll be clear. Took about 20 minutes to put a desk together. One hint, use multiple cable ties for each group of cables - they get pulled off a little easily (might be worth getting the advanced cable management, but it's ok without).

      Nice desk

      Posted by Frank on Dec 29th 2017

      I would recommend this desk to anyone who wants an adjustable desk. The quality of the board (I bought the bamboo one) and the legs are amazing. The reason I gave four star instead of five is that the power strip seems like an old one because it has a lot of scrathes and stains on it.

      Works perfectly, good customer service

      Posted by Michael R. Keller on Dec 8th 2017

      Extremely happy with the desk. The only issue I had was one of the power grommets didn't work, but as soon as I notified customer service they immediately shipped me a replacement.

      Couldn't be happier with my choice.

      Incredibly Wonderful!

      Posted by Burnes on Nov 8th 2017

      I have several standup desks in several settings and this one is simply the most amazing one to date. Unlike others, it does not look like a bulldozer shovel placed on top of a conventional desk nor lots of bulk or heavy wiring like most others. The way the motors are concealed inside the legs is amazing as well. The desktop wood options are very cool. I love my bamboo. I plan to buy more of these.
