Madera Bonita & Co.
New York, NY

Gary Gould, owner and chief designer, is the driving force behind Madera Bonita & Co.  Incorporated in 2002 with a  mission to produce fine wood products that are both beautiful and functional, Madera Bonita hand builds upscale turned wood products such as salad & fruit bowls, salt & pepper shakers, kitchen canister sets and other functional turned wood products.

They use segmented construction as a design tool.  This process involves cutting small pieces of wood and assembling them into rough form which is then turned into shape on a hi-speed lathe.  This enables designs that would be impossible to create from solid wood.
