    Thanks for your definition of “racking.” I’ve used that term for years in the sense of your definition but recently looked it up in the dictionary to make sure I was right. I didn’t see a single definition related to woodworking joints or joints of any kind for that matter. I was afraid that I was using the wrong term all these years.

    Your definition assured me that I am not going senile. Thanks.
