Introducing the UPLIFT V2 & UPLIFT V2-Commercial Custom Solid Wood Standing Desk

With a name like that, you know it has to be luxurious. Here's your opportunity to customize your workspace with a beautiful solid wood desk made just for you. We don't keep these tops in stock. Rather, you get to pick from a dozen available styles, with tones that run from light to dark and, in some cases, barkline edges. And the desktop is cut to your specified width, so that it fits your space perfectly and provides all the working room you need.

Your custom desktop will rest on our re-engineered, reinforced, patent-pending UPLIFT V2 Frame (available in four colors). Wirecutter loved this frame (paired with our bamboo top) so much, they named it the "Best Standing Desk." Its increased stability, versatility, and functionality mean you get a desk that can do even more to help you accomplish your biggest goals.

Click here to learn more about the UPLIFT V2 Frame, as well as our UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame—and compare the two.

A Custom Desktop Just for You

Select your solid wood top from 12 different styles: dark ash, natural ash, premium maple, dark pecan, natural pecan, white oak, sipo mahogany, premium cherry, premium bamboo, premium walnut, cedar, and mesquite. For cedar and mesquite, you can also choose a natural edge—a barkline—for the front and/or back. It's a nice touch that brings an organic feel to your workspace.

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.

Tell us how wide you want the desk to be and we'll cut it to within a 0.25" tolerance. Please note that we recommend a width from 42" to 80", for proper frame support. All tops, with the exception of bamboo (1.5"), are cut at a 1.75" thickness, making for a desktop that can endure for decades.

Because we make these desktops to order, lead time is 6-8 weeks—but this is a desk you can love for a lifetime.


Everyone can agree that while nature isn’t perfect, it is certainly beautiful. If you are in the market for a one-of-a-kind natural desktop with asymmetrical lines, random grain patterns, spotty colors, knots, hairline cracks, and other irregularities, then you will love our solid wood desktops. Any hairline cracks that you might find won't affect the desktop in any way and won't be very noticeable once your desk is built and in use. Our thick solid wood desks reflect the untamed, pure habitat in which they grew and their alleged imperfections are often what lead customers to buy them in the first place. Customers who prefer perfect lines, consistent colors, matching patterns, etc. may be most satisfied with one of your great looking laminate desktops. All this said, we take quality very seriously, and we are sure you will agree that our Solid Wood UPLIFT Desk is not only the most functional height-adjustable desk on the market, but also the most exquisite.

You can also order this desk in an L-shape, if that's what you need. And we have in-stock solid wood desks, if you don't want to wait. Check out our Desktop Brochure for even more options.

UPLIFT Desk - Raising the Standard in Standing Desks

UPLIFT Desks are engineered for world-class stability, safety, and reliability. They feature an impressive vertical travel range of over 25.5", fast height adjustment, one-touch operation, and individual drive motors in each leg. Both the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frames are built with top of the line quality components and precision machining that is built to last. So the desk you invest in today works for you well into the future with our 10-Year warranty. Certifiably sturdy and strong; both frames meet the ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 standard for durability and stability.

The combination of one-to-one motor to leg ratio and advanced collision sensors result in an industry leading anti-collision system. Unlike other desk brands, the UPLIFT Desk anti-collision feature works great as the desk moves up or down, and the sensitivity can be adjusted to account for usage differences.

A desk that raises quickly to a preset height with a touch of a button is a desk that you'll use more often to keep moving. Using a desk should be effortless and fun. UPLIFT Desks are equipped with 3-stage legs with a large vertical range to allow frequent sit-stand transitions throughout each day. UPLIFT Desks have a 33% greater height range and are 33% faster than competing desks. Less-capable 2-stage desks have a substantially limited vertical travel range and are considerably slower, which can impact comfort and productivity if the desk doesn't go low or high enough for the task at hand.

The patent-pending accessory mounting point system allows for quick and sturdy attachment of our exclusive desk accessories without the need to drill holes into your desktop. This mounting system adds sturdy modularity and ultimate customization capabilities to your dream workstation.

Both the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Desks have been awarded top ratings as the "Best Standing Desk" by Wirecutter in 2019-2020 and in 2020-2021. UPLIFT Desk has also been rated #1 by TechRadar, 9to5Mac, Lifehacker, Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Wired, and many others.

We stand firmly behind the quality of our products. Desks and most accessories come with a 10 Year warranty, desktops have a 5 Year warranty.

Which Frame Type is Right for Me?

The UPLIFT V2 and V2-Commercial desks are equally stable. The V2-Commercial desk has a height range that starts at about 3" lower than the V2 and conforms to the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard. The key difference between the two is the height range as listed below:

  • The V2 Desk has a height range of 25.5”-51.1” with a 1” desktop. That’s a 25.6” travel distance. This desk is ideal for users 5'4" to 6'7" tall. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'10" user
  • The V2-Commercial Desk has a height range of 22.6”- 48.7” with a 1” desktop. That’s a 26.1” travel distance with a lowest height that's about 3" lower than the V2 desk. This desk is ideal for users 5'0" to 6'3" tall. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" user
  • Adding casters raises the desk and is a good way to accommodate very tall users. Keep in mind that using an UPLIFT Rocker-X board adds 2.5" to your standing height

The UPLIFT V2 Desk has stability braces at the top of each leg for maximizing stability without the need for a lower crossbar between the legs. To provide the space needed for the stability braces, the leg orientation is inverted with the larger telescoping tube section at the top. These angular stability braces eliminate side-to-side wobble and replace the need for a lower crossbar.

For the V2-Commercial Desk to achieve a 3" lower starting height with a larger overall height adjustment range, the three telescoping leg sections were designed to be shorter and travel farther. Because of this, the telescoping leg stages overlap each other less than they do on the V2 desk legs. To compensate for less overlap, the V2-Commercial desk has thicker legs connected by a lower crossbar. The end result is best-in-class stoutness that matches the award-winning stability of the V2 desk.

The V2-Commercial Desk was developed to optimally accommodate users under 5'4" tall. It meets the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard to accommodate users who are 5'0" to 6'3" tall (5th percentile female seated height to 95th percentile male standing height). With the lower starting height, the V2-Commercial Desk also better accommodates children. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" or taller user, and allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" or taller user.

We recommend the use of a keyboard tray with either desk to position the keyboard and mouse so your wrists are perfectly straight and the keyboard tray height is perfectly positioned either lower or higher than your desktop height. The optimal position for your keyboard and mouse is to have your upper arms hanging comfortably at your sides, with elbows at about 90 degrees, and wrists perfectly straight while typing and mousing. This will usually place the keyboard tray just above your lap. UPLIFT keyboard trays have 8" of height adjustment and move vertically from 5" below to 3" above the underside of the desktop (without a 2.8" thick track spacer). Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" or taller user, and allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" or taller user.

Tap Into Your Desk's Full Potential

The Basic Keypad is an entry-level keypad with no advanced features. It has up and down buttons for height adjustment. To change the desk height, press and hold a button until the desk reaches the desired height.

The Advanced Keypad adds these features:

  • One touch movement (optional) - Tap a button to transition between sitting and standing height, without holding the button down. Lets you reposition your chair and get ready to stand while the desk moves.
  • Child Safety Lock - Prevent the desk from moving until deactivated
  • Min & Max Height Settings - Prevent your desktop from impacting shelves above or cabinets below
  • Auto-Dark Display - LED display will go dark 10 seconds after use
  • Desk Height Calibration - Calibrate the displayed height to account for the addition of casters
  • Anti-Collision Sensitivity Adjustments - Dial in the anti-collision system to be exactly where you need it

The Advanced Comfort Keypad includes the Advanced Keypad features and adds an angled face for easier viewing, raised dividers between buttons for no-look operation, and a satisfying, rubberized, soft-touch feel.

The Advanced Paddle Keypad includes the Advanced Keypad features and adds intuitive desk adjustment with no need to look at the keypad. Double-tap the paddle and the desk moves automatically to a preset height. A programmable standing reminder feature notifies you when it's time to stand.

Accessory Mounting Points in the Frame

One of the most unique design features of our new frames is the integrated mounting point system (patent pending). We included 48 individual spots where you can quickly install your choice of UPLIFT Desk accessories—without having to drill any holes or drive any screws. And they hide under the desk, so you don't see them while you work.

We have several accessories in the works that can take advantage of this system, including power strips, CPU holders, and desk extensions. Our first accessory available is an under-desk hammock—which just goes to show you how sturdy our frames are. Snooze with confidence for as long as you need to, and then hop right back to working on your favorite project.

Please note: the hammock is only compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It’s not compatible with the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame because it interferes with the stability crossbar.

Power Options and Wire Management Solutions by UPLIFT Desk

Intelligent Power Solutions

Don't forget about one of the most important aspects of your workstation: power. We offer in-desk power grommets, clamp-on power modules, and surge protectors—all designed for height adjustable desks.

Instead of using a wall outlet, power your electronics from the desk, which helps prevent cords from pulling out when you make height adjustments.

Smart Cable Management

Once you have everything plugged in, take a look at your cables. If they're loose on the desktop, or hanging underneath, you'll want to do something about that. Not only do loose cables look disorganized but also pose a safety issue. Because your desk moves up and down, they can get snagged and pulled, possibly unplugging them or damaging equipment.

We have several wire management solutions that can help organize your cables, producing a tidy—and safe—height adjustable workspace. And to get you started, we include a wire management tray with your UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Standing Desk.

We'll Plan Your Office Desk Layout for Free

Don't stress—we'd love to help you plan out your office. If you're considering four or more UPLIFT Desks, we can design your office desk layout at no charge. There's no need to wait until the desks arrive—and then to spend a day or two trying to figure it all out. Just complete four simple steps, and we'll configure your desk space for you. You can rest easy knowing that you have a plan for your new desks.

As an added bonus to your desk layout, you'll also receive a discounted quote for your order.

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 on using our solid wood desktop repair kit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame.

  1. What is the difference between the 1.5"-thick premium bamboo and the 1"-thick bamboo offered on in-stock desks?

    Besides giving you an extra 0.5" of thickness, the standard bamboo top is a UV-cured bamboo that we stock in our warehouse. It comes with or without a center cut-out and will ship out in 1-2 business days. The premium bamboo is made from fully matured Moso bamboo. This denser bamboo features a beautiful vertical grain. Each desktop is custom-made to order and ships out in 6-8 weeks.

  2. What is carbonized bamboo?

    Carbonized bamboo has been treated to give your desktop a beautiful brown-honey-caramel finish—which really makes a statement in the office!

  3. Can I order a custom size?

    Absolutely! Every UPLIFT V2 Special Order Solid Wood Standing Desk is made after you place your order, which means it can be built to your preferences. Changing the desk size won't increase the lead time, either. Contact our customer service team for a quote.

  4. Why is the lead time so long? Can I get my desk any faster?

    Think of your custom solid wood desk like a fine bottle of wine: it takes time to make it just right. Each desktop is custom-made by our woodworkers after you place your order. A solid wood desktop can't be constructed in just a day; it takes time to cure and finish the desktop. We know it's difficult to be patient, but this desktop is worth the wait!

  5. I really don't want to wait, but I also don't want to compromise on getting a solid wood desk. Are there any other options?

    We do carry quick-ship solid wood desks. These desktops have been crafted by our woodworkers and are ready and waiting in the warehouse. That means we can get them to you quickly! You will just have to choose from the sizes and species we have available in stock.

  6. Can I get this with the ergo edge?

    Unfortunately, ergo edges are not available on our solid wood desktops.

  7. How durable is solid wood?

    At 1.75" thick, these desktops are beasts. Solid wood is a very durable surface and will harden over time. However, the surface may get scratched or become dull if you don't maintain it. If you live in a very dry climate, you will need to keep your desk hydrated with lemon oil. Otherwise the wood may dry out and crack.

  8. How should I care for my desktop?

    We combined all of the maintenance items needed to care for your solid wood desktop in one simple kit. You'll clean the surface of your desktop with lemon oil, which also helps keep the wood properly hydrated. Use the oil with furniture cloths to help polish the surface. If scratches do occur, you can gently buff them out with the steel wool pad.

  9. Can I pay more to get my desk faster?

    Unfortunately, no. Each desk is handcrafted, and the entire process takes a while. Check out our in-stock solid woods or our sales and clearance desks to see if anything suits your needs.

  10. I just received my desk and the color of the wood looks a little off. Are you sure that this is the wood I ordered?

    Although we are not perfect, it's more likely that your freshly harvested desktop looks a little different than a mature desktop. Different wood species either get a little lighter or a little darker as they age. Over time, the color will eventually even out.

  11. Can I expect to get my desk in the specified lead time?

    Right now, solid wood desks take 12-14 weeks to build before they are shipped out. With about one week in transit time, you can expect to receive your order in three-and-a-half months.

  12. What is a "barkline?"

    Cedar and mesquite desktops are available with a barkline, or "live edge." This natural edge follows the curve of the wood and provides a unique, rustic look.

  13. How can I feel good about chopping down a tree for my custom desktop?

    We've partnered with the National Forest Foundation to plant five trees in U.S. national forests when you buy a solid wood desktop. You can rest a little easier at night knowing that the new trees will help beautify our national parks.

  14. Will the desktop surface be smooth?

    Natural wood is—well—natural and may contain some bug holes, knots, and imperfections. Our woodworker smooths these out by adding either black or clear filler to the surface of the desk.

  15. Does the weight capacity include the weight of the desktop?

    The load bearing capacity of the frame does not include the desktop. Since each desktop is a different size, we have included the desktop weight in pounds per square foot for each species, so that you will be able to calculate the weight capacity for your custom desktop. Say you get a 72" x 24" desktop in pecan: your desktop will weigh 111.6 lb. That still leaves you with 243.4 lb of computer equipment and office accessories that you can evenly disperse across your desk!

  16. Will this desk work well with a treadmill?

    If you want to put a treadmill under your solid wood desk, just make sure you order a desktop wide enough to comfortably fit a treadmill on one side and a chair on the other. You will also want to order a monitor arm, so that you can easily swing your monitor back and forth between your treadmill and your chair.

  17. Is the solid wood desktop the right choice for me?

    If you are in the market for a one-of-a-kind natural desktop with asymmetrical lines, random grain patterns, spotty colors, knots, hairline cracks, and other irregularities, then you will love our solid wood desktops. They reflect the untamed, pure habitat in which they grew, and their alleged imperfections are often what lead customers to buy them in the first place. However, if uniform lines, finish, pattern, and color are characteristics that match your style, you'll likely be happier with one of our great laminate desktops.
