A 1.5 hp router is a little light in the hp department for many cope and stick joints, but you should be able to do some profiles with a series of light cuts. As Bill said, wood density will affect your cuts too, but again, that also is affected by the profiles you are trying to cut. A 2.5 hp router would work better, and a PC 3.25 hp router would cut all the joints that you throw at it. Work Safely, Have Fun and Good Luck!
