Sandi Alldredge is a wife, mother of five, property manager for a rental cabin in Brown County and at times a housekeeper. But she still finds time for a passion that gives her gratification and joy — woodcarving.
Many of the pieces Alldredge creates are commissioned to mark a special event or even the life of a loved one. Some depict a grand accomplishment, and others represent an endearing memory.
Her father got her interested in woodcarving years ago. What began as a hobby with a 16-inch scroll saw and a few pattern books soon escalated to projects far more complex. Before long she found herself selling wood art with her father at regional craft shows and flea markets.
