I've immense respect for the late Niki. He was so good at making do with what was available.
I do most of my work in Thailand and have the luxury of importing my own tools. However most Thais can't do that and have to make do with home made alternatives.
There is a very creative woodworker who almost seems to be a reincarnation of Niki. He has a website "thaicarpenter.com" and posts on YouTube, while the explanations are in Thai so I can't understand them and some of his technique could be better, I think he has Niki's spark
