I learned the hard way that the pressed fiberboard contrstructed bookshelves offered by the big oofice store chains could not support my books without bending and eventually breaking. The hardwood construction, multiple available finishes and the 84 inch height sold me. After 4 months of use, the shelves are still straight.
All wood selection, joinery, staining and finishing is still performed by skilled artisans. To meet Hale Bookcase's criteria of aesthetic perfection, wood stains are hand-sprayed and hand-rubbed between carefully applied coats.
During September 1907, Mr. F.E. Hale, a designer of sectional bookcases purchased the facility of Horracks Desk, incorporated the company and bookcase manufacturing started. Mr. Hale retired in 1918.
By the late 1960's, through the request of their customers, Hale designed and brought to market first, an open wood bookcase, 84" high with adjustable shelves.
Hale Bookcase's mission is to produce quality wood products at a fair price with total fair commitment to the customer and stable employment for the local workforce.
