Four and a half inches deeper than the standard Heritage Barrister Bookcase, these roomy antique style shelf sections fit larger books, vinyl record collections and binders. Made in the USA using sustainably sourced North American hardwood, the fully assembled solid wood shelf sections securely stack together. No tools required – simply unpack and stack the glass door sections. Easily add more shelf sections as your library grows. The receding glass door sectional unit is well built with a lacquered bronze knob and a mechanical equalizer to keep the door from binding and allow for easy, one-handed operation. Expand upon this glass door section with other Heritage Extra Deep shelf sections, including the media drawer, pull out shelf and more.
Hand crafted from kiln-dried solid Cherry, Oak, Birch or Walnut, the Heritage collection has the classic lines of vintage fine furniture and the long-lasting strength of solid wood construction. The interlocking design of the Heritage collection gives you the ability to stack the sections as needed, and you can easily add more units later as your collection grows.
The natural beauty of wood is in its unique color, grain and texture characteristics. Finishes are designed to enhance this distinction in wood. Thus, the finished product may differ from the above color swatches and an exact match cannot be guaranteed.*

I like the finish and cabinetry of these units. They look good However, I recently came across some old Globe Wernecke units at an antique store which were the gold standard for barrister cabinets I believe. Probably close to a hundred years old, but I found the mechanism for lifting the front door and sliding back to be much smoother than the new Hale units, which take some finessing to move back into the cabinet as compared to the Globe units. You might want to revisit your mechanism.
Wonderfully crafted! Stored my albums and other treasures so I could see and easily retrieve them. So well built!
This is now my third purchase from Hale - I'm slowing organizing my house and will continue to buy more as I sort through and organize myself. This company has been exceptional to work with - the quality of the product and the care in packing and shipment is wonderful. If you have any doubts, do what I did - start out with a small order and see for yourself. My first purchase was a base, two case units and a top. I figured if I didn't like them, it would be something I could use in a bedroom. I was so impressed when I got them, I immediately started planning for my next purchase. These will outlast me!
These book cases are now the finest furniture in the house. 2 stacks of five each, side by side with one long cap covering both, they are magnificent in light cherry wood. Arrived well protected and in great shape. This is my second order from Hale, the first being a stack of 2 walnut lateral files, which are also beautiful and in great working order. I recommend both products without hesitation.
