You’re looking at cabinet work, so you need some way
to break down panels accurately. You can do it with
a circular saw for rough cuts and then use a table
saw to square parts, or you can skip the table saw
and use a track saw setup.

A table saw setup that can break up full 4×8 sheets
takes up a lot of space.

Sliding compound saws are really a solution to a pro
problem of cutting wide mouldings. For most other
tasks they are overkill, though if you’re making
bookshelves the 12” capacity is perfect for bucking
shelves and sides to length. There are lots of
other ways to solve that problem though.

Drawback of miter saws is they are very messy.
