This relies on the edge opposite of the "jointed" edge already being
pretty straight, since you're running it on the cutter's edge "fence",
right? Have you noticed any problems from this?

Spielman's router book has a setup for jointing using a router mounted
horizontally. The edge of the bit is adjusted to be 1/16" above the
surface of the table, and 1/16" laminate is glued on one side of the bit
(the "outfeed" side). You run your stock into the bit, and the laminate
supports it at the same height as the bit.

You could do the same thing with a regular router table by making a fence
with a "hole" in it for the bit to go through. Adjust the fence so the
bit is 1/16" out from the edge of the fence, glue some laminate to the
outfeed side, and you've got the same thing as Spielman's setup. Viewed
from the top:

          infeed		   outfeed (w/laminate)
