RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - While snow may be one man's headache, it's another man's canvas.

Eighteen-year-old Goochland resident Cory Agnew created a life-size grapple skidder from a large pile of cleared snow in his yard.

The monster sculpture stands 9 feet tall, spans 27 feet, and took 30 hours to build. He looked up pictures online to make sure he got every detail right.

With a bit of engineering, he sculpted an unusual work of art.

"There's two pieces of number nine rebar in it holding it up and we packed snow around it to form the arm. The fog lamps are a detail that are on a lot of them and the wheels give it a lot of the authentic detail."

This is not Cory's first project. If you'd like to see some of his other creations, see the link to his website at right.
