Della Meredith of La Porte, Texas is like the J.J. Watt of wood carving, and she uses a chainsaw on her statues.
Meredith, a former art teacher who turned her love of chainsaws and wood into a business, usually goes with totem poles or fish as her carving subjects, but after a request from a friend, she decided to make a Watt of her own. The end result is this amazing 5-foot, 80-pound sculpture that captures Watt's being right down to the eye black.
Meredith told KPRC 2 in Houston that she would love to see what Watt thought of her work. Ask and you shall receive, Meredith:
