As most of you know, our long time member and friend Mike has passed away this week. He has a funeral today and LumberJocks home page will display his projects in the Daily Top 15 section today as a tribute to him (thanks for this idea, Rick)

Rest in Peace, Mike. You will be missed.

Thanks, Martin. This will be very fitting because he will be missed by many.
