Do not let a tight budget and cramped conditions limit your expectations. A good basic machine will do more than just the basicsError loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/cwsGalleryImages.cshtml)
The Bosch GTS 10 J is quite a chunky yet compact unit designed to give a much-needed means of accurate board and panel ripping on site, but with a reasonable crosscut ability, that's not all it's good for.
I made my first kitchen with solid panel and frame doors in maple (Acer campestre) on a machine not dissimilar to this. After roughing out the sheet material with a jigsaw, the components were dimensioned and the lippings cut prior to veneering. Before I knew any better, I was using it to produce tenons and cut rebates, although these methods are nowadays rightly relegated to the past. I mention this to illustrate what can be achieved on a basic machine when either budget or space is limited.
