My problem with control has been with the vertical pieces, particularly for narrow pieces, such as small drawers. I get better cuts, almost no tear out and cleaner cuts by doing the vertical cust on as wide a piece as my router table can handle and then cutting with a table saw after that to the desired width. For example, I made a 25" vertical miter lock cut and then cut the piece into 4" pieces I needed for the drawers I was making. Since I am using plywood, having the extra 1" at the end took care of any end tear out. The bigger piece was much easier to control for a good cut.
