Long time contributor passed away9/11
I don't know if it's my place to say or not, but I thought I'd pass along that long time contributor Tim Shultz passed away a few days ago. I don't have much more information than that at this time.
Tim used a lot of different aliases on this board, very rarely going by Tim. But if you've been here a while you've no doubt engaged in many of the spirited threads that he started. He'll be missed.
Prayers and condolences to his family and friends.
Damn, sorry to hear that.
I am glad we have respect among Cabinetmakers
Tim was a well meaning poster he will be missed
I have enjoyed this forum for a long time, learned a lot here, sorry to hear, much respect and thoughts to our kindred spirits that make a living making sawdust.
Tim was a really nice and genuine person.
I to am very sorry to hear of Tim's passing.
He was indeed a great contributor and he added much to the community.
Also sorry to hear of Tim’s passing. We go way back. We were trading ideas on cabinet making in the late 90s early 2000s. Not so much after we moved into doors and windows.
Also very sorry to hear of this. Energetic posters are what make this forum great. He will be missed.
Tim was one of. My best friends. I've known him for 30+ years. He built my 1st kitchen, then I built many cabinets in his shop over the years he was very talented in his craft and extremely generous. I talked to him a day and a half before he passed, which I'm grateful for and saddened too. I knew about all the discussions on woodweb over the years and was just going to post about him today. Glad to see someone beat me to it.
So sad to hear this,he will be missed.RIP
Hi there, Tim's daughter here. I worked for him off and on in the years and know how much time he spent on Wood Web, he really enjoyed it here. We haven't put out an obit yet, but there is a wake happening this Sunday at his shop in Seattle. If you'd like info, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm so sorry for your loss
I'd like to share a little bit about my friendship with Tim. I actually never met Tim in person, but we talked for many hours on the phone over the last 20 years. So I suppose I knew Tim about as well as you can know someone without having met them. 20 years ago, this forum was in it's prime. A bunch of contributors who no longer frequent this site were having deep and lengthy discussions on topics such as manufacturing philosophy, software, CNC technology, etc. Tim of course was a part of that, and he and I talked at length outside of this forum about those same topics. Some of you who were around then will recall that Tim was a huge advocate of Lean manufacturing. I was (and still am) an advocate for TOC, and so we spent many hours debating the 2 philosophies. But the topic that Tim and I discussed the most was his direction towards a retail market vs. my direction towards a wholesale market. Basically, Tim wanted nothing to do with architect's and general contractors, and I want nothing to do with homeowners. Of course, we are both forced to deal with all three in our daily business, but it was an interesting topic to discuss. It was an ongoing conversation and an ongoing experiment, his philosophy vs. mine, and I'm sad that it has ended. I'm sad for Tim's family, I'm sad for his employees and I'm sad for this industry. I will miss him.
Here is a link to Tim's website.
I am not sure if I have conversed with him here and cannot say I knew him personally but I have been reading and posting in here for quite awhile now. I would be surprised if our paths have not crossed in postings. I am very sorry to hear of his passing, from all accounts he sounds like he was a fantastic fellow. I value everyone in here who willingly contributes information and ideas about woodworking and CNC, CAD CAM etc etc. This is a valuable resource for many including myself and it is a big loss when one of the more frequent contributors leaves us. I pray for the family and for the business to survive if that is what the family wishes for it. I know he will be missed. Good luck and God bless....
