Ipe (ee-pay) is a type of very dense very hard wood usually used in decks and other outdoor uses. It is usually a dark brown colour.

Thanks, BowJunkie!

I had been wondering about "decrowning" for a little while now.

I see a lot of use of 'ASL' but can't figure out what it means or stands for. Can someone please enlighten me?

I think it stands for American Style Longbow. Seems they are similar to a Hill style yet with a bit more taper in limb material and a slightly different profile.

Thanks for the great information in all these posts! Brand new to the site today.

Several posts reference back trapping. Can someone please define that? Is it different than backing?

I'm making the transition from compound shooting and have been interested in bow-making for a while. Last year, I made up some oak staves from a trunk that washed down the creek, but they cracked all over the back. I assume the cracks go too deep for the staves to be used. I'll try again with some of this dying ash that's all around the Catskills.

Thanks for any help.

Great topic! I'm new to bowyering, and have problems remembering some of the terms. This helps, and hopefully it'll get ingrained pretty soon.
