It's not so much the depth of cut, as you only want to remove a little With each pass, but having the extra length on the shank would be very helpful.
We have a mortiser at work but I want to work with what I have at home.
We recently had to do a bread board edge on a custom table that required deep mortises beyond the 6 1/2" capacity of our mortiser. Drill press and chisel work.

Not cheap but if you are looking for a deep mortiser here's one: https://www.amazon.ca/Makita-7104L-1...SIN=B0002HC2VQ These are mostly for log house building so you would probably want to clean the sides up with a chisel.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

In the past I have used our lock mortiser for deep mortises and it worked great. But again, you are limited on size of bits. It just seems like there is a real limitation for deep 1/4" mortises with a router.

One of the other ways to do the breadboard end would be to make a sandwich instead of using a piece of solid wood on the end. You could make it interesting by using a different colored wood for the core than the top and bottom pieces which would also hide the glue joint. Change the problem into a "design opportunity" as Harry likes to call his work arounds when things don't go as planned.
