Get the table saw first. To build a workbench the table saw will be of much more use than a miter saw. One of the most common cuts you will need to build almost anything is the rip cut. Table saws excel in rip cutting. Miter saws can’t rip cut and while you can rip cut with your circular saw it is a difficult and somewhat awkward operation with that tool. You be able to crosscut with both the table saw and circular saw, making the miter saw more of a luxury than essential.
