Standing Desk UK Oak Live Edge /Electric Desk / Adjustable Desk


Shipping to United States: Free

This solid oak live edge electric standing desk is sourced sustainably in the UK has a real presence and purpose and will look great in any home office. If you're having issues with your back but also want a natural wood product, this desk is for you. Sometimes you need to keep working to finish a task but want to stand up and go for a walk, putting the desk in standing mode might be all you need to power through that task or make long Zoom calls more enjoyable. Combine this desk with a great chair, or non-conventional chair, and you'll have a winner that will keep you productive at home, but leave you feeling great with the warm touch of wood.

Adjust the desk manually using the up and down buttons, or use one of the 4 height presets. It's been scientifically proven that the sight and touch of real wood can have a calming effect, and we all need as many stress-reducing things as possible in our lives right now. Simply decorate with a few nice plants, and you'll be as close to nature while working from home as you can.

The frame is whisper quiet so adjusting it in the middle of the night at home is not alarming.

The thirsty bare wood desktop is soaked in a combination of Danish and Tung oil, and then hours later, we'll come back to give it a 2nd coat, and then we'll buff it to a beautiful matt finish. This will make it water resistant to water rings around your water glass or coffee cups. Years later if the finish ever starts to look dull, you can simply apply more oil and you're ready to go again.

I have new stock of wood coming in every so often, so please message me and I can send you a photo of what I have. All kiln-dried slabs will have a minimum of 64 cm up to a depth of 80 cm. Slabs can also be cut so the front is a live edge, and the back would be a straight edge, or both sides may be a live edge.

Before I arrange to ship the desk to you, I’ll send you photos of your unique desk in progress, and of the finished product so there are no surprises when the top arrives.

Depending on how far you are from my workshop, and the size of your desk, the desk can come fully assembled. In most cases, the top will come with pre-drilled holes, and the leg frame will arrive fully built, or in a box. It just depends on the layout of where it's going in your home office.

See below for other features:

-Child lock to prevent kids from using your desk as an elevator
-Anti-collision which temporarily stops the movement of the desk
-Store your chair under the desk when standing
-Reduce fatigue by sitting and standing throughout the day
-4 memory height presets
-3-year warranty on electrical components
-Assembly Service is optional, but do make sure it can fit through your door all the way to its destination, otherwise, just build the legs and attach it to the frame.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have to pay an import tax when receiving goods as your shop is in the UK?

You may need to pay import tax if your goods are valued at over $800 or more as my humble shop is located in the UK. For standing desks, the top and the electric frame will be coming in two shipments, so the overall total value of the good will be lower as the legs can enter the country duty-free.

ex: You order a complete standing desk (top and frame) and pay $1600. The legs will be valued at around $700, and the top will be valued at $900. Since shipping is included in the price for both items, I can lower the value of both items and allocate shipping fees to the top and leg frame. Now both items will have a lower value, and therefore you may not need to pay import tax.

How much weight can I put on the ladder shelves?

The shelf is robust and will hold a fair amount of weight, but not designed for extremely heavy objects. Books, bowls, potted plants, and things of that nature are all perfectly fine.

Please keep in mind I am referring above to a ladder shelf made from reclaimed pallet wood that leans against a wall. The solid bookcase made from steel and scaffolding I make can hold as much as you can throw at it.

Why is my stuff taking so long to ship?

A majority of the items are handmade and take a lot of effort. Using reclaimed material means time needs to be spent to fetch, dismantle, wash, and sand the material before I can even start a project. For hardwood projects, the wood is in a raw format which means we need to plane it so it's smooth, remove the bark, and sand, and apply several coats of oil to get it just right. If we're talking about resin desks...well, each piece of wood is unique and it takes time (72 hours or more) for the resin to set in between each pour. I don't want you to chase me, but rest assured my tiny team is doing the best we can to deliver top-quality products to you ASAP.

I absolutely love this standing desk! I’ve only had it set up for a few days but have already received lots of compliments on how beautiful the wooden desk top is and I couldn’t be happier. The electric motor that adjusts the height of the desk is also silent and seems to be of great quality as well. Overall, John was great to work with and is very kind and professional. He was also very helpful and went above and beyond when I needed some assistance with the assembly process which I greatly appreciate! All in all, I highly recommend this desk!

Excellent quality hand made desk! You really get what you pay for, this desk is beautiful and will last a lifetime. John has been great with communicating to me delivery timelines and how the desk was progressing. Thanks John!

Aboslutely love this unique piece of furtniture (or should I call it art). Forget all the melamine fake-wood, mass-produced standing desks out there; this is the real deal. And John has been a pleasure to deal with: he was responsive to my requests for changes, which meant I got the perfect desk for our home. He was even able to add a matching shelf to stand my monitor on and keep my standalone HDDs underneath. Still taking some time for my ginger tom to get used to the movement, and he hasn't jumped up on it yet. Another bonus. Did I say I love this desk? Some pictures added.

The desk was way beyond my expectations. The piece is exceptional, there some “imperfections’ like I wanted, it brings character and makes it unique. John was incredibly helpful, sent plenty of pictures and keeping me updated.
