Launching the Lift Bridge Furniture Platform

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new web site and marketplace platform that connects buyers, local furniture makers, and furniture designers all in one place! All Lift Bridge Furniture designs are contributed by members of our Maker Team and shared amongst the Lift Bridge Furniture community to create a global “virtual furniture company” of sorts.

After months of planning and hard work, we’re finally ready to start expanding our Maker Team with talented makers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and the United States. As we continue to grow and build out our Maker Team, new makers and product listings will be added to the Shop section of our web site where buyers will be able to search for Lift Bridge Furniture being made in their local area. Makers can choose which Lift Bridge Furniture products they want to sell in their shop and they get to set their own prices as well.

Kicking it off with a Standing Desk

To kick off the platform, I designed a solid wood standing desk / drafting table that uses electronics to move up and down from a seated to a standing position at 44.5″ max height.

Because the desktop can be tilted to be used as a drafting table, or for excellent keyboard ergonomics, I incorporated two aluminum cup holders to prevent any spillage of your favorite beverages while working. The above desk was built out of solid hickory which has lots of character and beautiful color variations. The knots were filled with epoxy so the writing surface is completely smooth and flat.

The desk was also designed so that it can be used with a Rolling Monitor Stand and Inversion Chair for the ultimate laptop workstation. The plans and videos for the Rolling Monitor Stand and Inversion Chair are still in the works, but you can expect these furniture pieces to be added to the platform in the near future.

If you’d like to build the Lift Bridge Standing Desk / Drafting Table yourself, you can find the plans here. Otherwise, head on over to Our Shop,¬†search for a talented maker in your area,¬†and order one or more for your office!
