Niki as some of us knew him has passed. Regina, his wife, sent an email to a member of another forum we were both on. I only hope someday to be half as creative in my jigs.

He will certainly be missed. His photo shoots, projects, and explanations are top notch.
Is there a website to leave comments? Many funeral homes do that.

One of the most creative Woodworkers I've ever seen. His creativity for making jigs was barnone. I'll really miss his tips.

I arrived late to the game, never connected with him and am sorry to see a fellow wood worker pass, my condolences to his family.

While I never had the opportunity to gain from his knowledge directly, as it seems many of you have, I did go to his listing in the members area and look thru some his postings. I hope they stay available so that others may gain from his insight as well.

Niki was a man who knew how to do more with less than most anyone. He will be sorely missed. :(

That's truly a shock.
I always liked Nissim's posts. Some of his "inventions" were amazingly well thought out.
He will be much missed.

Niki was indeed talented and was always willing to share his ideas. Should he disagree with someone (and that was seldom) he could express himself in a very respectful manner.

He will be missed!

RIP Niki. His photo essays on how to make his jigs, etc were always incredible.

The link to his contributions didn't work when I tried it. It would be nice to have some sort of pinned thread that archived them.

I can truly say that his posts were the ones I never failed to read, and study. He was a brilliant problem solver, and a truly nice man.

Aaron, that link doesn't work for me. If you are linking to a user generated list of search results, I think it will quickly become invalid.
