Apart from what's done already (with the pegs holes being too large), the centre join was opening a little & wasn't noticed until the tailpiece was off, but these sort of things are quite often discovered later when everything comes off & a good inspection is done without rushing. There has been a bog repair done on the left sound hole. I'm not sure if I will replace that with a graft yet or not (depends on the amount the owner wants to pay) but at least I can tidy that bit up with some varnish retouching. I will take another photo & post it in this thread when it's complete & sounding like it should. I won't video myself playing it though. That's just for the pleasure of the client.

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
