How good is the quality of our solid oak, walnut or pine?

“An oak desktop of the highest quality and workmanship. The desktop is hard, strong, fits perfectly with my Ikea Idasen legs, and has a great colour and finish.”

5 stars, M Faulkner, Feb 2022

“The table is exactly what I wanted. It was produced to my exact specifications, and the quality is phenomenal. Delivery was a breeze. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough!”

5 stars, Ryan, Aug 2021

“Ordered a bespoke desktop and wow did they deliver. Exactly to specification and the quality is first class. Was really worried especially being a bespoke item, but the communication, craftsmanship and final delivered item was better than expected. Many thanks to all, and to Wayne for delivering in the 1 hour window allocated. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks, will definitely recommend!!”

5 stars, T Rathbone, Aug 2021

“The quality of the delivered desk top is exactly what I wanted and meets my very high expectation. I am totally satisfied with the timing of the work, the delivery process and my desk top. I have no hesitation in recommending the work of [SWT] and the whole ordering process. I am a very satisfied customer.”

How was the desk frame compatibility?

Fitting it was a breeze, and that was really important. All the holes were at the right place, with the plastic inserts; I just followed the instructions from the desk frame and it all fitted nicely, no hassle.”

5 stars, George, Apr 2021

“It looks good, is well finished and [fitted] with the IKEA frame perfectly.”

5 stars, D Fenton, Oct 2021

“I’m very pleased with the desk top that I bought for my Ikea standing desk base. The holes in the desk top were perfectly placed and it took minutes to fit. Couldn’t be happier.”

5 stars, A Schofield, Feb 2022

“I purchased a custom top for my FLEXISPOT E3LS L-Shaped Corner Height Adjustable Electric Standing Desk Frame. I was looking for an oak top for a while, before finding these guys. I could not be happier with the quality of the worktop or the service, and delivery of the team.”

5 stars, D Doughty, Dec 2020

“I ordered a custom table top to fit a Conset frame in a relatively small space. They were very helpful in helping me decide which table to buy and what features to have. They also went above and beyond to try and match the colour that would suit my office. The quality of the table top is exceptional and I would recommend them.”

5 stars, A Gibson, Jul 2020

“I bought the Flexispot legs (also happy with) and fitted the desk top myself. Some good quality screws went in easily so no need to even drill pilot holes.”

5 stars, J MacAulay, Jul 2021

“Using it as a desk top to a Jarvis Fully standing desk and its a very nice fit. Lovely bit of furniture, and feels like its built to last a lifetime – well worth the money.”

5 stars, Sam, Aug 2020

Why was our top preferred over the manufactures?

“I ordered to fit an Idasen frame but with a custom length to maximise my office space. Everything was straightforward from start to finish and it was delivered with care exactly as per the dates given.”

5 stars, Jan 2021

“I got fed up with my warped Ikea desktop and googled replacement and it is FANTASTIC, as solid as you like and… a great bunch of people, terrific service and really rather beautiful lumps of wood.”

5 stars, C LONG, Jul 2020

Perfect for my clamp monitor stand (the stock Ikea tops warp if you use them which is less than ideal).”

5 stars, A Cheltenham, Feb 2020

“I wanted a Flexispot desk, but didn’t like the size and wood finish options available from the manufacturer. I came across [Solid Wood Tops] when searching for other options, and they made me a custom solid wood top that perfectly met my needs – wood type, size, finish and even a nice addition of a gentle curve on the corners of the desk.”

5 stars, S Cairns, Feb 2022

“When compared with buying a solid wood top along with the frame from Fully, ordering from [Solid Wood Tops] was a cheaper option. The piece is beautifully crafted, and I love the colour. I chose it 27mm thick, and it looks just how I wanted it.”

5 stars, Quentin, Feb 2022

“I ordered a bespoke oak desk top and computer stand to go on the Ikea Bekant sit/stand legs and I am so pleased with both products! Visually so much more pleasing than the standard Ikea desk top and super quality.”

5 stars, A Pietrek, Jul 2021

“Rather than buy from IKEA, I decided to treat myself to a custom made desk and monitor riser. The quality of the workmanship shown on the [Solid Wood Tops] website really stood out, [and] I was win over by the customer service.”

5 stars, A Inglis, June 2020

“I needed a desk top for a sit/stand desk frame as the frame company didn’t supply one in the size I needed. The [Solid Wood Tops] company were able to supply one made to measure. The order process on line was easy and the company a pleasure to deal with.”

5 stars, Janice, Jan 2021
