I’d vote for a smoothing plane if I were you, once you get it dialed in properly and well sharpened you can get great results. If money is an issue an old Stanley 4 (or 3) in passable condition works great. Also I’ll echo the comments on the router plane, those things are nice to have. Not the cheapest though.
