Hi ygdrasis54

"table only has a capacity of 16" where I need to do 20""

Here's a trick I use, cut the board to the max your saw can take on less a 7/16" then take both parts to the router table and get your T & G router bit set out ,run both ends then take the short board back the saw table and put the rest of the slots in.
When you done glue it back up as one board. (the grain should match when you done or almost)
Run a test board b/4 you run it in your router table, you want it to come out true and flush. (Most T& G sets cut a 7/16" deep slot.)

Hi

"Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn't it?" = YES it is ,I use it all the time but I just about always add the word DAM when I use it :)

I think I got it now,,,You are making a toy box and using cabinet door type Panels then to hook them at the corners you are going to use a Box joint,,,RIGHT >
This is when the Oak-Park box joint jig for the router table would come in nice.
It will let you put in box joints in any thing, it can be 8ft long no big deal.
Just need a bit of support on the ends to help hold it up sq.to the table top.

see link below. besure view the demo

You're Welcome Tom :)

Bob and Rick do come up with some NEAT jigs....

If you buy do buy the jig buy all 3 of them you will use them all the time like I do it's one of the best jig I have in my jig tool box,I use in place of some dovetails because it works so great and so easy to do.
Once you make one you will have it down :) it's that easy and you may put your jig for the table away for good.
