Which desk frame is right for you? It's all about the height range.
Click here to see the similarities and differences of the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2 Commercial.
The UPLIFT V2 Desk has a height range of 25.5" to 51.1" tall with a 1" desktop installed. Thanks to its generous height range and smart features, this is one of our most-loved desks. It's amazingly sturdy, quiet, and comes with advanced features. It was also selected as the "Best Standing Desk" by Wirecutter.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Desk has a height range of 22.6" to 48.7" tall with a 1" desktop installed. The UPLIFT V2 Commercial frame has a lower starting height, a lower max height, and a larger overall height adjustment range compared to the UPLIFT V2 frame. Our Commercial frame meets the height focused ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 standard required by many of the world's largest companies (not to be confused with the durability focused ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 that this desk also meets).

Patent-Pending Design & Integrated Mounting Points
Take a look at our new V2 desk frame design; underneath it, you'll find dozens of built-in mounting points that allow you to attach accessories directly to your frame. This new mounting method is designed to help you get even more out of your UPLIFT Desk, and is so sturdy, you can even hang a hammock from it! As we release more frame attachments like CPU holders, desk extensions, and power strips, you can keep adding to your desk to create the custom-built workstation that keeps you happy, focused, and healthy.
Please note: The Under-Desk Hammock is compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame (it's not compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Commercial frame due to interference with the crossbar).
Unlock Features with the Advanced Keypad
Reduce time spent holding down your keypad's buttons by saving your preferred heights on the Advanced Digital Memory Keypad. Quickly tap a button and watch as your desk adjusts to your chosen sitting or standing height. It also allows you to unlock all of the features of your UPLIFT Desk, such as one-touch adjustments, memory features, keypad (child) lock, high/low height limits, and more.
If children and foot traffic are constants in your immediate work area, you'll love having access to our new safety features. Child lock (keypad lock) give you assurance that your desk doesn't adjust unless you want it to. And in the off chance that it does come into contact with a person or an object in its path, your desk will intuitively know to stop and reverse thanks to anti-collision sensitivity, giving you time and space to remove whatever was in the way.
After you have all of your sitting, standing, perching, and guest preferences set on its four memory keys, you'll be able to adjust your desk's upper and lower limits, so your desk doesn't adjust into file cabinets below or shelves above.
And to reduce office distractions, this keypad even comes with an auto-dark LED display, which dims its display 10 seconds after you use it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
- What is the difference between the bamboo offered here and the other bamboo corner desk?
The bamboo on this desktop is 1.5" thick, versus 1" thick on the other corner desk. This is premium Moso bamboo, which is a more mature bamboo. These desks are custom made after you order and ship out in 12-14 weeks, whereas the other bamboo corner desk is pre-cut and sized—and available much sooner, if you need your desk quickly.
- What is carbonized bamboo?
Carbonized bamboo is bamboo that's been treated and "caramelized," resulting in a beautiful honey-caramel finish. All of our bamboo desktops feature carbonized bamboo.
- Can I customize the desk size to fit my workspace?
Yes, since each solid wood corner desk is custom-made after you order, you can have it cut to your exact specifications. Just call us and let us know your dimensions (down to a quarter of an inch), and our woodworkers will be able to craft your custom desktop!
- Can I get my desk any faster?
Just like our other solid wood desks, this desk is made-to-order. Each desktop is constructed by our local woodworkers after you place your order. The desktop will need time to cure and finish before it can be shipped.
- How durable is the wood?
Solid wood is an incredibly durable surface. Although freshly harvested wood can be somewhat softer, the material will harden over time to become even more durable.
- How should I care for my desktop?
It is important to keep your desk well hydrated to prevent it from drying out and cracking. Our Solid Wood Care Kit includes lemon oil, buffing towels, and a steel wool pad. For small spills or maintenance cleaning, just wipe your desk down with a damp rag.
- Can you expedite the process to get me my desk faster?
Since each desk is handmade after you place your order, we cannot cut any corners to get you your desktop faster. We have a variety of quick-ship L-shape desks for you to select from, if time is of the essence.
- The color of my desk doesn't really match the color of the desk that I built. Did I get the wrong wood?
More than likely, no. Immature woods often appear lighter or darker than their aged counterparts. Over time, the color of your desktop will even out to more-closely match the color you were expecting.
- Will the wood crack over time?
If you live in a particularly dry climate, this can be a risk with any solid wood furniture. Therefore, it is important to keep your desk hydrated with lemon oil, which can be found in our Solid Wood Care Kit.
- How are the two desktop pieces held together?
You will secure the two pieces of your solid wood desktop using two brackets. There will be a seam where the pieces fit together—so make sure to precisely level and align the desktops during installation, to minimize the gap.
- Is the surface of the desk smooth?
Solid wood may contain some natural imperfections, such as bug holes or knots. Our woodworker will fill in the surface with black or clear filler to help smooth out your desktop.
- Can I get some wood samples to help me make up my mind?
Order our Solid Wood Sample Kit to get an idea of what each wood species looks like in your space.
- Can I order my desk with a curved corner, as opposed to the 90-degree angle shown in the pictures?
Unfortunately, we cannot craft a curved corner. If you want to make the inward corner of your desk more usable, consider adding a Corner Sleeve.
Custom-built solid wood desktops as unique as you are. Choose from 12 wood species and finishes.
