A 3” panel raising bit is pretty big for a hand held router. If you were going to try it, I would take small bites and make multiple passes.

Using a tall auxiliary fence on the tabelsaw for panel raising is a very valid method. If you want the traditional ‘step’ (a small right-angle shoulder before the taper begins) you can run the panel flat on the table first, making a shallow cut 90* to the table to define the raised area. Then bevel the blade and set up your tall fence and bevel away.

If you have a panel raising bit and a router table that is also a great way to do it. You can buy bits that will do the whole profile at one time, so you don’t have to worry about trying to add shims. I’d still do it in stages. Not a cut I’d do in a single pass.
