It has been said but I’ll echo – learn with what you have or minimal investment. I learned (am still learning!) to cut mortises on the drill press then clean up with bench chisels. I like to cut tenon shoulders on the table saw with a miter gauge (or a sled!) and cut cheeks on the band saw. I’d you don’t have a band saw I’d suggest looking for either a band saw OR a decent hand saw, either of those over a table saw jig. Just my opinion.
Good luck and don’t forget to have fun and enjoy it!!
