Pegbox crack repair


The violin has a nasty crack from the A-peg hole to the edge. It is repaired using a spiral bush made from a thin maple shaving. The spiral bush will absorb the considerable force applied by the peg trying to open the crack again. (Many of the pictures were taken by my 10-year old daughter, Emmie)
