After you pulled the switch you can actually cop it with a woodcutter's axe (it next to grindstone near the woodcuttery).
Only when I did that and actually obtained the logs as items the trophy unlocked.
I can confirm that this is true. The Hard Worker
trophy popped after I manually cut wood using the woodcutter's axe in Riverwood. Just loading the wood-chopping machine and pulling the lever didn't do it for me.
