Ben's Mill: Making a Sled (1981) by Michel Chalufour & John Karol (50 minutes) - http://www.folkstreams.net/film,187.

Ben Thresher's mill is one of the few water-powered, wood-working mills left in this country. Operating in rural Vermont since 1848, the mill is a unique link between the age of craft and the age of modern industry. In this excerpt, Ben uses his machines and finely crafted tools to turn out a horsedrawn sled for his neighbors in the farming community. The film evokes the quality of rural New England life, and at the same time provides a close, step-by-step view of Ben's woodworking processes.

The complete one hour film can be ordered from Documentary Educational Resources.
