The Standing Desk Frame, for the DIY Expert

When it comes to tending to the terrible issues and complications that sprout from sitting at a desk for extended periods of time, a standing desk is your best bet. In fact,  a study published by the CDC found that use of a sit-to-stand desk reduced upper back and neck pain by 54% after just 4 weeks. The Rise Standing Desk is the best option among standing desk models on the market, with its powerful dual motor metal frame under a sleek and modern wooden table top. 

If you want a desk that is at the height of style and utility simultaneously, then Risedesk is the brand for you. But sometimes, you might be looking to be a little craftier.

If you are really into woodworking, design, carpentry, furniture, architecture, or DIY in general, you may be looking to use your own custom wooden table top in your desk. And now you don’t have to compromise! With the Rise Standing Desk Frame, you can combine all of the sentimentality of your unique table top with the health benefits and modern edge of the Risedesk frame. Read along to find out if the Rise Standing Desk Frame might just be the option for you.

What is a standing desk frame?

The complete standing desk, just without the table top! The Rise Standing Desk Frame is all of the power, technology, durability, and quality of the famous Rise Standing Desk, simply with the table top removed.

What is the difference between the Rise Standing Desk Frame and the Rise Standing Desk?

The Rise Standing Desk is a stand alone desk that does not require any additional components to work. It is a complete solution to sitting pains that includes everything you need to get started right away. The Rise Standing Desk Frame, on the other hand, is all of the components of the Rise Standing Desk, minus the desktop. So you will need your own desktop to assemble a complete and final product.

Is it cheaper to build your own standing desk?

It can be now. With the discounted price of the standing desk frame of $645, considerably less than the full price of the Rise Standing Desk at $945, if you use your own already-owned custom table top, you can end up economizing considerably! All of the power, for only a fraction of the cost.
