Real Solid Wood Tabletops
iMovR offers the largest selection of solid wood tabletops for standing desks. Made entirely in the USA (Michigan) from sustainable US-grown species and honest materials, these tops are a testament to American quality craftsmanship. We offer four tiers of species:
Precision machined, and lovingly handcrafted
Each iMovR solid wood top starts out by being shaped and pre-drilled on advanced, precision CNC equipment, and then lovingly hand-finished in a 7-step heirloom-quality hand finishing process. No other real wood top you can buy for a standing desk is produced to such exacting quality standards.
Like all iMovR desktops, our solid wood tops are ergo-contoured, with a 3/4" (Lander Desk) or 1/4" (Lander Lite Desk) tangent round-over profile along the entire length of the user edge, for excellent comfort and wear resistance. Once shaped, the slabs receive multiple passes of hand sanding and staining.
The tops are then finished with a KCMA-rated waterborne sealant, both top and bottom, ensuring long life by reducing the effects of humidity changes on the wood. This low-VOC finish protects the natural wood from moisture, chemicals, abrasion and marring, while being safe for workers and the environment (reduces use of solvents for application and cleaning).
Sure, it costs more to produce a desktop this way compared to cheaper chemicals and automated application that commodity desktop manufacturers may use, but we believe there is simply no comparison in the resulting beauty of the desktop. The durability of our real wood tops is also unmatched due to the fact that we seal the entire slab, not just the visible areas, to minimize the impact of humidity and temperature changes that can cause other tops to warp over time.

When ordered as part of a Lander desk system all frame components and electronics are assembled to the bottom side of the desktop, tested, and then safely packed for delivery to you. The Lander desk legs are shipped separately and will arrive before the top. Final assembly does not require any tools and takes only a few minutes to affix the legs to the tops, plug the desk in, and start working while standing up.
Choose your Finish for Bottom of Desktop:
The darker the desktop stain relative to the natural color of the wood, the starker the contrast between the top and bottom of your desktop. We offer three options for finishing the bottom of your desktop:
1. Standard Sealed Bottom: Sprayed with two coats of finish to seal and protect the wood from environmental changes. May show wipe marks from artisan's hand-staining along the edges. Note: Darker stains on lighter-colored woods will show the greatest color variation between top and bottom.
2. Spray Toned Bottom: In addition to standard sealing, the bottom is spray-toned with a stain color similar to the final finish of the desktop. Not as elegant as hand-wiping, but provides better color consistency between the top and bottom as compared to standard sealing. May show occasional wipe marks carried over from hand-wiping the top. A practical choice for masking the color contrast on lighter-colored woods with darker finishes.
3. Heirloom Quality Bottom: Fully-finished to the same superior standards as the top of the desktop. Hand-wiped stain completely eliminates color contrast between top and bottom for all wood options. Keep in mind the most visually-striking side of the wood slab is always selected for the top surface. While the bottom may show a few more minor imperfections, the stain is exquisitely hand-applied on both sides. The most elegant option for matching the top and bottom of your desktop.
