Around the coffee pot This forum is for any topic that you would normally talk about at the office "around the coffee pot". Jokes, tall tales, and true stories are welcome as long as they are clean and in good taste. I only ask that you steer away from topics on religion or politics. Go ahead and pull up a chair and pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the conversation.

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...

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.

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.

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.
