I’m testing this system to see if a .pdf file can be shared here on a forum. Its a workbench plan. I’m using Google docs. Please let me know if it works or not. If it doesnt, please let me know why ie…. viewer needed or something like that. I think it has to be emailed.

Great…...... does it allow you to just view or can you change anything. Like my email or anything like prvacy settings.

I can view or download it. Nothing else as far as I can see.

308, It seems to work fine on Firefox. I too can view, download and looks like print. The search feature also works well.

Dear 308GAP,

Could you kindly remove that link from your post and remove the PDF from Google Docs? Dave’s right, it is Fine Woodworking’s copyrighted content.

Sorry for the inconvenience. However, people who are interested in the bench, can watch this FREE video on our site about it:

Or read about the making of the SketchUp plan for the bench:

Or read a Q&A about making the bench:

Or, if people are looking for other free plans, they can check out our free plan blog:

Thank you for the assistance, I’m sure you didn’t realise this could be problematic.

Thank you,

Gina Eide,

Have your say...
