That is sad to hear. Niki was a source of inspiration for many.

I’m sorry to hear that. He was something of a technical wizard and offered a lot to the site.

What Would Niki Do? (WWND) takes on a whole new meaning. For the newer folks on the site this was a common phrase a while back. He made some very innovative jigs and shop fixtures. Most of them can be found in his forum topic posts.

Hard to believe this news, I’m so sory to hear that. My condolences to his family.
He is so helpful and very generous with good tips and advice. Surely I would remember the best tips and jigs for ripping thin strip on the table saw he posted on the forum.

Thanks John.

Does anybody have a link to the “official announcement—” even if it’s in Polish?? I couldn’t find it.

I’m corresponding with the owner of another ww-related website, and … am always hesitant to relay this sort of news without being certain … the Internet being what it is…..

Thanks.

To Niki’s family…I am very sorry for your loss. Niki’s woodworking was some of the best—-but that is not what made him special to me…it was the way he presented himself and explained things in a meticulus, yet caring way.

We will all miss him…RIP my friend.
