If you’re on the hunt for a great laptop stand, perhaps you should first consider what a wooden laptop stand can accomplish for you. First, there’s the aesthetics. With the possible exception of one-piece aluminum laptop stands, laptop stands made out of wood, whether bamboo, pine, oak, or even composite material, tend to outclass their metal compatriots in the aesthetics department. There’s just something beautiful, minimalist, and subtle about the fine grain of natural wood. This is especially true if you’re trying to match your laptop stand with your office desk.
Secondly, whether horizontal or vertical, wooden laptop stands tend to stand the test of time a little bit better than height adjustable laptop stands that have many moving parts. Those moving parts are prone to breaking a bit more than a solid piece of wood with perhaps a simple angle adjustment mechanism. Another advantage of a wooden laptop stand is that they can bear a bit more weight than metal stands in most cases. And while most laptops are fairly light, wooden stands tend to flex less and stay more rigid than their aluminum counterparts. And of course, just like laptop stands made from different materials, the wooden variety is just as portable. So are you ready to be introduced to the best wooden laptop stands currently available? Let’s have a look at them.
1. WishACC Bamboo Adjustable Laptop Stand
This wonderful and capable laptop stand is made from high-quality bamboo and has a double-ventilated surface area to keep your laptop running as cool as possible. This is particularly useful for non-mac laptops. Five different adjustable angles by way of sturdy metal in a wooden groove mechanism will ensure that no matter what size laptop you place on this stand, there won’t be any wobble. From 20° to 48°, the five viewing angles provide plenty of flexibility for your personal preference, which is a nice touch. So no matter whether you’re using an external keyboard or not, you’ll always have the right angle for comfortable typing with this wooden laptop stand. And to top it all off, this bamboo laptop stand features a nice grain and thin profile, so it doesn’t look too bulky on your modern office desk, no matter whether it’s a sit or standing desk.

While it’s only the second item on this list of wooden laptop stands, I think it’s safe to say that this is the best-looking wood laptop stand there is. Available in either a birch or Walnut finish, this gorgeous laptop stand uses the natural curvature that only wood grain can accomplish to provide a sleek, minimalist, and sturdy frame for your laptop.
But what truly makes this laptop stand a cut above the competitors in the wooden laptop stand market is all the thoughtful design touches that result in a multitude of features. First is the thoughtfully carved strip-shaped holes in the stand’s surface to create a better cooling experience. Next, we have the nicely shaped lip that holds the laptop in place along with a thoughtfully carved out notch to allow for easy access to your laptop lid. The carved out hole in the stand’s neck is also a nice way to provide some manner of rudimentary cable management. And finally is the ability to quickly store your external keyboard on top of the foot of the stand, allowing you to free up more desktop space.
