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?
