James Vooght – Class of September 2013

jAMES VOOGHT CONSOLE TABLE

James worked in various European countries for action sports agencies before founding his own, providing digital media and graphic design to action sport teams.  James joined the Academy to develop his woodworking skills.  His carpenter stepfather had taught him some woodworking and he enjoyed making furniture for himself and his friends (utilising old pallets from the streets of Barcelona for one piece).  After leaving the BBA he worked at the Architectural Association’s Hooke Park campus where he helped construct two new buildings and their interiors.  When his contract at Hooke Park finished he worked for the oak timber framing company Carpenter Oak and Woodland.  James now runs his own furniture studio making bespoke items in tandem with working full time building tree houses at Bowerhouse Construction.
