Hi Allison,

First, I looked at your projects and I want to say that you do some beautiful work!

On the segmentation topic, I don’t consider myself an expert on woodworking terminology but I do know a thing or two about words. Some dictionaries define segmentation as ”the act of dividing or partitioning; separation by the creation of a boundary that divides or keeps apart”.

I can see your point about separating a single piece of wood into many parts but the definition also uses the word “or” followed by “partitioning”. Partition can be defined as “a separation, as of two or more things.”

The first definition also says, ”separation by the creation of a boundary that divides or keeps apart”

Speaking in literal terms, I would say that Bob’s project is a form of segmentation. The parts of his lidded box are clearly separated by both the joints and the contrasted woods.
