North American Hardwood Slab Desk // Solid Wood Desks with Electric Adjustable Desk Base

Classic, Quality Hardwoods

Do your work on the natural beauty of real, North American hardwood.  We make your solid wood desktop to order in the species, size, and color of your choice - providing a range of 1.25" thick American hardwoods, unparalleled in natural beauty and quality.

  • Beauty meets functionality
  • Do your best work on a inspiring, naturally beautiful surface
  • A classic, renewable resource


Beauty meets Functionality

Your tabletop choice is combined with the award-winning Jarvis Desk Base to make moving from sitting to standing, effortless. With an industry-leading lift capacity of 348 lb (158 kg), the Hardwood Slab desk has excellent stability in both high and low settings.

Sustained Support

The Hardwood's programmable handset allows you to speedily adjust from a minimum tabletop height of 25” to a maximum of 50” (perfect for average and larger sized people). Recent studies in workplace ergonomics recommend that for every hour, spend 40 minutes sitting and 20 minutes standing. When you're at work (whether sitting or standing), keep your screen at eye level; your wrists are straight and parallel to the desk surface.

Wealth of woods

We offer tops in Rustic Walnut, Classic Cherry, Quarter Sawn Oak, Natural Maple, and several Stained Maple finishes. We can also special order tops in Red Oak, Clear Cherry, Clear Walnut, White Oak, Hickory, Birch, and Alder by special request.

The Heart of Sustainability

For a sustainable choice, we recommend Maple. The population of Silver Maple and Big Leaf Maple are increasing as these trees grow faster than other hardwoods, making it a great, ecological choice for hardwood desktops.

Final Touches

You have your choice of edge profile on Rocket Mission's Hardwood Slab desks. The standard is 1/8", but you can choose larger/different profiles for comfort or aesthetic reasons.

You can also order the top without a base if you're thinking of upgrading your existing standing desk in the future.

To purchase without a Jarvis base (desktop only), please checkout with the coupon code:  NOBASE - we will deduct $385 from your order (the price of the basic base included with the desk) and make/send only the desktop.

The desk case is handcrafted to order in your choice of hardwood finishes.

We CNC cut your desktop with 1/4" diameter rounded corners and a slight 1/8" roundover (other options available) on the top edges.

The desk is protected with a beautiful, highly durable, water-based, and low-VOC urethane finish. By special request, the table top can be finished with Rubio Monocoat - a molecular binding coat that is awarded Eurofins indoor air comfort gold standard.


Drawer fronts & cord doors can be made in the same finish or a different accent color.


The base is available in black, gray or white. 


As each desk is made to order, check for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.



Recycled / recyclable content

Made predominantly of steel, which is highly recyclable

Air Quality & VOC Emissions

Good - low VOCs, water-based used in lacquer.  Slight odor to the finish for a while as it cures.  If you are sensitive to odors we recommend the Rubio Monocoat.

Wood selection

All solid woods selected have increasing populations (i.e. more wood is growing than is being cut)


Are these desks made to order?

Yes, we handcraft each desk to order, so please allow us time to construct your desk. If there are any time considerations or special circumstances regarding your order, please let us know right away so we can take care of you. We can sometimes prioritise desk orders if requested. This incurs an additional fee to pay our workers for overtime.

Is the back of the desk in the same finish as the front?

Yes! The back of the desk will appear very similar to the front – the idea is to allow use in a range of interiors - whatever setting or space you require.

Is there any assembly required with the desk?

Yes, but it’s extremely straightforward. The desk ships in two separate sections. The assembly level is in line with a flat-pack furniture project with a quick assembly of the frame and then attaching the desktop to the frame with a screwdriver.

How long will it take to get my desk?

As each desk is made to order, check for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.

Can I see color samples?

Yes, we offer color samples free of charge here:

Are you the designer?

Yes, I am – I have been a woodworker since I was a kid (I’m now in my 40’s). I have a passion for art & design and a couple of engineering degrees. My furniture is a mixture of those experiences. I design, and we make everything in our shop in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

What kind of wood is it?

We make the desk bodies out of solid walnut, cherry, white oak, or maple. We use baltic birch plywood for drawer boxes and internal parts (where appropriate).
