Full Answer

The only legal measurement of firewood is the full cord, which measures 8 feet wide by 4 feet high by 4 feet deep. The standard firewood length is 16 inches, so three heaps side by side measure 4 feet wide. A rick of wood is usually one-third of a full cord.

    How do you apply lacquer to repair a scratch on wood?

    A:

    For a small scratch on wood, use a wood marker or wood fill stick to hide the scratch, fill it with wax, then refinish the area with lacquer. For deeper scratches that cut into the wood, sand first, and then apply lacquer. To repair a number of deep scratches, the finish may have to be stripped and the furniture re-lacquered. Small scratches on floors are repairable with colored lacquer pencils.
