Well, there is no better place to start building your confidence than to build your first router table. You have the tools to do it.
When I taught woodworking the router table was always the first project. It can incorporate a lot of basic and advanced joinery to get practice with, but really is an easy build.

Besides you really need to learn how to build a router table, it’s rare to find someone that is 1000 percent satisfied with the one they have, so people are always building a new one.

Even Norm Abrams has rebuilt his at least a half dozen times.

So I’m with dbhost, build your own. And you’ll get a lot more bang for the buck.

-- If the old masters had power tools, they would have used them. So get off your damn High Horse.
