I built cabinets and furnture professionally for years
and never felt the need to get a heavy 3HP router.

I usually used a 1.5 HP router in a table and a variety
of router topside, from laminate trimmers to a DW6221
which I used for mortising and most plunging.

I guess if you want to raise a lot of panels a big router
can come in handy. The big ones are awfully heavy and
that tends to make them tricky when profiling edges
topside, especially the plunger models.
