The paper is focused on comparison of experimental and simple theoretical method of determination of loading capacity depending on bevel angle of wooden bonded scarf joint. The Mohr's circle principle, thus shear stress dependence on normal stress, is used for loading capacity formula derivation. It has been established that for random bevel angle under approximately 70 degrees the future loading capacity can be calculated from knowledge of ultimate force for bevel angle 0 and 90 degrees.
