Carved Pegs

I'd suggest you get the restorer to order the pegs, tailpiece, endbutton, chinrest etc. for you. If bought separately, the wood may not match, even if it is the same species.
Tempel are a good make, I'm sure you can get them from different places too. Each country seems to have its own specialist go to guy, but if we are talking of carved boxwood, expect the costs to be considerable.

Ditto!

Did you free-hand carve the ornamentation?

Yes....I had intended to sub the work to a top end wood carver and then covid intervened....I did all the work in a day including making little carving tools...Had to get into the zone...Seemed easy on the day but can't remember how I did it....
