A jigsaw is very nice to have. But don t forget how versatile a router can be, especially a plunge router once you figure out what jigs can do what particular job you need to do. You can cut curves in tabletops with a straight bit, for bevels you may find a bit that does what you want etc. I ve even seen people flatten rough laminated tabletops with a router. And once you add a router table, its adds even more versatility.

Have a plunger router especially for that reason. Have a really hard time going freehand or keeping it in a straight line. Touché on the curve though. I have a circle cutting jig. I guess if I needed an ellipsis I could do three partial circles? I’d be interested in any reading for jigs for plunge routers
