Although wood is sold in many quantities, generally the only officially accepted measurement of quantity is the cord, according to the University of Tennessee Forest Products Extension
It is the amount of wood that fills up a space 4x4x8 feet long, which is a large amount! It would fill the bed of a pick up truck 2 times, and last a household most or all winter.
A standard cord of wood consists of sticks or pieces 4 feet long
Half of 4 x 4 x 8 is not 2 x 2 x 2. It's 2 x 4 x 8.

A rick, or rack of wood is 4 feet high by 8 feet wide, and is the length of the wood pieces deep, and only one row. The same applies to the term 'face' cord'.
