Abstract

A molded product formed from wood flakes intermixed with a binder and a first elongated member formed from elongated wood flakes compressed and bonded together with a binder, the wood flakes having a grain direction extending generally parallel to the longitudinal axis of the flakes and the flakes being generally oriented in alignment with the longitudinal axis of the first elongated member. A second elongated member intersects the first elongated member and is integrally joined to it. The second elongated member is also formed from elongated wood flakes compressed and bonded together with a binder, the wood flakes being generally oriented in alignment with the longitudinal axis of the second elongated member. The wood flakes of the second elongated member intersect and are interleaved with the wood flakes of the first elongated member to thereby form an integral molded joint between the first elongated member and the second elongated member.
