I tell ya I am not sure I am glad I asked this or not. LOL!!! Mainly because I have very definitely been using the words intarsia AND segmentation to refer to my wood work on here for years and
A. No one ever mentioned that I was saying it wrong and
B. I have this lingo used on my website!
What’s up with that? LOL! I kind of feel like the “Dumb blonde (in a box)” :)

Seriously tho I decided to google it differently than my previous attempts. I searched “definition of intarsia in woodworking” I got this as a result.

“http://books.google.com/books?id=5xYBcTalTWQC&pg=PA119&lpg=PA119&dq=Definition+of+Woodworking+intarsia&source=bl&ots=ZxIU6ckfTK&sig=6zkqn3X-AIVNSHQbtfxsTSJfJzg&hl=en&ei=9MYTbWEDoaisQPOlGECQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CDYQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q&f=false”: http://books.google.com/books?id=5xYBcTalTWQC&pg=PA119&lpg=PA119&dq=Definition+of+Woodworking+intarsia&source=bl&ots=ZxIU6ckfTK&sig=6zkqn3X-AIVNSHQbtfxsTSJfJzg&hl=en&ei=9MY_TbWEDoaisQPOl_GECQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CDYQ6AEwAw#v=onepage&q&f=false

As you can see if you go to the link above, they do not even mention segmentation. (which I would have thought they would because of what I perceived the similarities to be between intarsia and segmentation)

Sooo then I searched “definition of segmentation in woodworking” and this is what I got!

http://www.google.com/search?q=Definition+of+segmentation+in+woodwrking&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

I just have to let you click this link right above. I could not believe it. Soooo I guess I am back to square one and you will see what I mean if you just click the link above.

Honestly, I thought I was going to die laughing!
