My client didn't want to spend the time making this old part of the crack disappear.
Replacing part of the block and about to glue in the new section of the lining.
Since the cracks were partially over the corner block and lining, I needed to take a section out of each in order to get clamps behind them.
Glued in and trimmed lining and block section.
Sharp edges of old varnish have been smoothed out to make blending of the new varnish/ retouching easier.
Shiny overcoat to protect the color coats underneath and smooth surface out.
Shiny surface dulled down to match rest of violin. DONE!
