RiseDesk Live Edge Epoxy Standing Desk Review
- First Look
The Live Edge Epoxy desk developed and sold by RiseDesk out of Toronto is one of the three premium standing desks made in Canada today (the Ergonofis Sway and Alive desks being the other two). This 60″ by 30″ tabletop is locally sourced from the forests of Canada, shaped and finished using epoxy resin inside a local Toronto woodworking shop and offered in two unique finishes — black and beach wave. You have to see this desk in person to truly appreciate the solid, natural wood surface and the quality craftsmanship. We personally can’t wait to get our hands on one.

|Positives||Visually stunning, it's an art piece.|
|Negatives||It's odd to us to see such a stunning and pricey desktop affixed to a commodity-grade, made-in-China lifting base.|
This is a “first look” synopsis on the Live Edge Epoxy desk manufactured by RiseDesk, a company based out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. A full review of their line of standing desks is coming soon.
The Live Edge Epoxy desk by RiseDesk is without question one of the top three most unique desktops made in Canada (the other two being the premium solid wood desks from Ergonofis, the Sway and the Alive).
RiseDesk employs a local Toronto woodworker in the development of the solid walnut desktops. The natural “live edge” of the wood is incorporated into the design so that no two desktops are ever the same. Epoxy resin is used to fill in the crevices and fill out the 30-inch depth of each desktop.
RiseDesk offers this desk in two different resin finishes—black and beach wave—and just one width, 60 inches. The lifting base is the same commodity-grade, Chinese-made affair as is used in their more pedestrian RiseDesk Standing Desk, which we’re reviewing separately. We find it particularly odd that the company has chosen to pair this very expensive, classy desktop with such a low-quality lifting base rather than go with a professional-grade American-made lifting base as Ergonofis and iMovR do with their premium solid wood desks.
One drawback of this desk presently is its limited availability. You may find yourself waiting for the production of your desk for an undetermined period of time as the woodworking shop completes its backlog of orders.
Other desk accessories offered by RiseDesk include monitor arms, a standing mat, ergonomic desk chairs, a leather desk pad and a monitor screen light.
RiseDesk backs the Live Edge Epoxy desk with a 10-year warranty and currently offers a 30-day trial period.
