    Hope that helps. :)

    First of all, we gotta get the lingo right. It's a rack of wood, not a rank of wood.

    Secondly, cord of wood not chord......

    So-----how many fagots does it take to make a rack of wood?

    My dictionary says chord is an acceptable replacement word for cord.

    Getting back to a fagot, do they only come in kindling size?

    I thought it was a rick instead of a rack or is that just our accent? LOL

    A rick, rack or face cord is only a part of a cord of wood. (A cord of wood is 128 cubic feet)
