This antique style lawyer bookcase is hand made in the USA using sustainably sourced North American hardwood. This fully assembled solid wood shelf section securely stacks together with an interlocking system. No tools required – simply unpack and stack the shelf sections in any combination. Easily add more shelf sections as your library grows. The classic barrister bookcase style leg base stands 7-1/4”H and is made of genuine hardwood lumber to match your sectional shelf units. Complete your bookcase stack by adding Heritage Standard Depth shelf sections, including the receding door shelf units, media drawers 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.*

Well made, beautiful finishing, everything fits together. Makes my other furniture look shabby.
Excellent product and terrific customer service. Well done all around.
We purchased this base along with a square crown unit so that we could reconfigure Hale barrister bookcases that we had purchased nearly 30 years ago. The oak finish exactly matched our bookcase finish and the base and crown perfectly fit. This is American craftsmanship at its finest-consistency in finish color and dimensional tolerances spanning nearly 30 years!
I'm an avid reader with a very large personal library of fine and rare books, small ancient archeological pieces and other curios. My design scheme for my library is Victorian / gaslight era. I have a full stack of barrister sections from Hale (base, 4 tall units, and crown) to accompany my wall to wall custom oak shelving. The quality is unparalleled. They fit together perfectly. I showed my set to a friend who does fine woodworking and he raved over the fine construction and attention to detail. I am more than pleased and feel the stack has added an aesthetic dimension to my library that is dignified and welcoming. I plan to buy more as my library is about at its current shelving capacity. Thank you Hale.
