      Good questions! I've been having a good read following the responses.
      I too have a couple questions about strings and servings.
      1) when/where did serving a bowstring begin?
      2) what are the most commonly served strings?
      3) does anyone know of a technique for making a string other than
      Flemish Twist or the more modern continuous loop?
