Default Largest Piece Cut on the Table?

What is the largest piece of wood you have cut on the router table? I'm trying to determine the best size for myself. Currently my table is a hybrid 32" wide by 21" deep but with a bridge going out to 37" for my Incra Ultra.

So far, I've only made small boxes. I have some large furniture sized pieces in the queue but I assumed that I'd cut dados and the like with a handheld router.

Seems to me that a lot of the work done on a table is more on the small size rather then the large size.

I build cabinets & the largest pieces I run thru the router table have been tall pantry sides for the case along with sides & partitions for the base cabs.

I cut a very wide rabbet in a 16' canoe gunwale on my router table. I supported the piece with feed rollers.

Cheers,
Roger

I made mine 300 cubits long (22.5 meters), so I could do edge decoration on the beams of the ark I'm building.

Not very long, James. That's why I'm building the ark.
