Barrister's Bookcase

Barrister's Bookcase

This modular bookcase has straightforward joinery, manageable assemblies, and can be customized in several ways.

When you look at this Barrister’s Bookcase, it would be easy to miss the fact that it’s not built like most bookcases. The bookcase isn’t built as a single large unit — it’s modular. And this particular Barrister’s Bookcase is made up of three different sections: a cap, a base, and a case with about a 14" opening (a slightly shorter 12" version of the case is also included). The nice thing about a modular design is that it allows for quite a bit of flexibility. The modules can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways. (The taller version in the photo includes two tall and two short cases.) Plus, if you run out of shelf space you can always build another section or two. (Which may be why these bookcases were so popular with lawyers, or barristers, to begin with.)

What you get:

  • 14 pages of step-by-step instructions
  • More than 60 full-color photos, illustrations and exploded views
  • Materials list and cutting diagram
  • Retail sources for project supplies
