Timber joints are generally regarded as the weakest part of a timber structure. In many cases, joints govern the size of the connecting timber members due to the spacing requirements of the fasteners.

By reinforcing the timber members locally with densified veneer wood, premature failure of the timber due to splitting is prevented. This method can lead to new and economical design possibilities. A traditional portal frame is presented in order to show what can be achieved with densified veneer reinforced joints.
