The UPLIFT V2 Special Order 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.

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.
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.
Why Choose an UPLIFT Desk?
We redesigned our frames to deliver even more with regard to stability, safety, and reliability. Whether you choose the UPLIFT V2 Frame or the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame for your solid wood desk, you're getting so much more than a typical standing desk offers. Built with contract-grade quality and long-term use in mind, they're just as exceptional as the desktop that will rest on them.
- Both frames meet the ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 standard for durability—meaning they're sturdy and strong
- Accessories install directly to the frame using our 48 patent-pending mounting points
- 3-stage frame legs can adjust heights 33% faster than 2-stage legs
- Each leg has a heavy-duty motor; together, they can lift up to 355 lb
- Anti-collision safety feature stops desk from moving when it bumps into objects
- 7-year warranty on all frame, mechanical, and electrical components
- Only 50 dB of sound when changing the desk height
Choosing Between the UPLIFT V2 Frame and the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame
Click here to learn more about both the UPLIFT V2 Frame and the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
The UPLIFT V2 Frame adjusts over a height range of 24.5" - 50.1" (without a desktop). Most of our customers choose this frame: it's quick, quiet, and reliable. And it includes several innovative design features.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame can be set anywhere in the height range of 21.6" - 47.7" (without a desktop). This frame has lower minimum and maximum heights, as well as a bigger height range, compared to the other frame. That's because this desk is made to the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard, which many large companies around the world have to comply with.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame is designed to support ergonomic working postures for 5th percentile females through 95th percentile males in seated and standing positions.
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.
Add Even More Flexibility and Safety
You already invested in the ultimate desktop, so why not ensure you have the ultimate keypad to go with it?
Instead of pressing the up or down buttons every time you want to change desk heights, use the Advanced Keypad. With four memory presets, you can program different one-touch settings for each of your working postures. Just press the button and let the desk spring into action for you.
This keypad also gives you control over the anti-collision sensitivity, which is a safety feature that stops the desk when it comes into contact with anything. In addition, there's a child lock that you can use to keep the desk from moving at all—for added peace of mind.
You can also use the keypad to set a maximum and minimum height for your desk, preventing it from bumping into anything above or below the desktop surface.
To top it all off, 10 seconds after you press any keypad button, the LED display will dim, to help minimize distractions.

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for all of your support. We started UPLIFT Desk based on your feedback; and our continuing goal has been to help every individual and every office build the workspaces they need to accomplish their biggest goals.

Because of your support over the years, even more people are working better and living healthier than ever. Thank you so much—we couldn't have done it without you.
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.

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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- Can I get this with the ergo edge?
Unfortunately, ergo edges are not available on our solid wood desktops.
- 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.
- 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.
- Can I pay more to get my desk faster?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
