I would just pick up a combo kit. Router and table. I just picked up a new setup at sears. Came with a router with low startup and led light and a nice little table. I paid 59.99 because it was double marked and I got lucky and it rang up at the 59.99 price. The router itself is 60 it's a flat base and the table is 60-75 but you can still get that combo kit for 99. Also the router comes with both a 1/4 and 1/2 collet which is awesome. With both collets you can use all the different bits including raised panel bits and all that. I know craftsman routers doesn't have the prestige as a PC or Bosch but the router I bought works flawlessly and I couldn't be happier with it. It has lots of features and comes with both collets if you get the combo kit. It's a heck of a deal and will give you the setup you need to make joints and like I said I couldn't be happier with my craftsman router. The only thing I didn't like is the 5/8 miter slot instead of 3/4 so I am buying a different table and just selling the craftsman one. Nothing wrong with it just need the 3/4 slot for a jig. Hope this helps
