Great water-mill powered woodworking documentary.
2 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm really surprised that after 25 years since this hour long show was aired that no one has commented on it. I know that the internet hasn't been around that long, but this highly informative documentary has. If you like all the old time nostalgia of a water powered mill this is right up your alley. It goes into great detail how the energy from the river is used to drive the multitudes of leather belts used to drive the various machines. The best part is the detailed showing of the steps Ben uses to make one of his white pine watering tanks. If you've ever wanted to build one of these just watch this show and you'll know what to do. You could always adapt one of these to be a jacuzzi you know. It's a good opportunity to watch something that shows the country side of Vermont. If you're interested you can Google "Ben's Mill" and you'll be able to find the days and hours and you can go see the place for yourself. I rated this a 10 because it is really a very good show.
