Thanks cabinetman,
Happy new year too.
The slip joint was mentioned and I'm wondering what that is. Any chance do you have a picture of that?

I'm guessing that mmwood 1 was referring to a sliding dovetail...I may be wrong. If it is that joint, I wouldn't use it for an end to end application. For that small of an interfacing glue area, a mortise and tenon, tongue and groove or a loose spline would offer about the same strength. An M&T or dowels would work, and by the time the rail is glued in with its joinery, you should have a substantial repair.

But, I would put my money on a nicely done half lap, without a doubt.

The joint I referred to as a slip joint (because that is what I have seen it referred to often) is a through mortise and tenon joint. I guess I probably used that term inaccurately in this case because I mostly use it for cabinet door frames and picture frames etc. where there is a rail and stile to join. In this case, you would be joining them end to end with a mortise and tenon joint. My mistake.
