Don’t buy that small router table. You don’t need (or even want) a router table to make mortises, you want a handheld plunge router. Any one you can find will do the job – you can even make do with a fixed base router, though it will be a bit trickier. You can also use it to cut the tenons, although you might need to make an auxiliary base for it.
Then, if you find you really like woodworking, you should build yourself a router table (but even then, you probably won’t use it for mortises).
