I use a Bosch 4100, with a shop made base mounted on a mobile base (from HF). I use 24”x48” folding tables with shop made leg extensions for in-out feed tables. Never had an issue with it being underpowered – cuts right through 3” oak. As for a jointer, I use a Stanley Bailey #7 and a Veritas BU, with fences for each one. They take up a lot less room vs powered. If you plan to make furniture with tops wider than ~12”, that won’t fit through a lunch box planer you will need a method to flatten and smooth – hand planes are the way to go for this.
