    Farewell To Niki

    I received an email from Niki's wife Regina, that he passed away this week after a long illness. He was a very bright and friendly guy. He will be missed.

    I didn't even know he was sick. He was very active with very detailed photo essays of his several good ideas and tutorials. Imagine what he'd accomplish if healthy! What a shame...
    Happiness is sort of like wetting your pants....everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth.

      That is sad news indeed.
      I always looked forward to his posts with pictures, thoughts and ideas. He was a very helpful and kind thinker and tinkerer for sure. He will certainly be missed. Thanks for sharing this with us, Cman.

          For new members or members that are interested, here is somewhat of a list of his efforts.

          I would like to post one of my previous posts in a thanks again to Niki:

            I hadn't seen any posts from Niki in some time and had wondered about him. I'd think about him whenever I'd tell people about this site because I'd tell them "we've even got a guy who lives in Poland".

            I'm very sorry to hear about his passing. May God bless him, his wife, and his family.

              Very sorry to hear this. Recently, I was thinking that I hadn't seen any posts from him in a long time. His posts were very interesting/informative. He will be missed.

                I am sorry to hear this too. I hadn't heard from him in a while either.

                The chief cause of failure in this life is giving up what you want most for what you want at the moment.

                  What an absolute shame. He was such a resourceful and helpful guy. If the Hereafter didn't have a woodshop, I know they do now. RIP Niki...

                    He was brilliant with jigs and picts too! He could tell the story of a jig with the photos only. He will be missed.

                      What a shocker! He was the epitome of 'Do It Yourself'!

                      Peace to him and his family.

                          What a shock to hear of his passing! We all looked forward to his informative posts, and we will all miss him. Prayers coming for his loved ones.

                            I was just thinking of Niki this week. I wondered why he hadn't posted in a while.

                            Niki, you have been and will be missed.

                              How sad, I too looked forward to all of his postings. Niki was certainly one very intelligent and talented guy.
