Trying to decide what crew skill to use. I will be playing a Jedi consular 1st up but looking to go a Smuggler for 1st alt.

No, that would be Armortech for the smuggler and Synthweaving for the Consular

I intend to level all the classes eventually but first off i am doing smuggler, trooper classes. Because crafting will cover all these. If your rolling a force user first you will want to take the synthweaving, archaelogy and underworld trading but you can only make armor for force users.

For a smuggler or trooper armor you would want armormech, scavenging and underworld.

Here is how I am doing it.

Scoundrel doing armormech, scavenging and underworld
Commando doing armstech, scavenging and investigation
Gunslinger doing cybertech, scavenging and either slicing or underwold
Vanguard doing biochem, bio analyzes and diplomacy

then later I will roll my force users.

Synthweaving is for all force users, Armormech is for non force users.

The armor you make as a Synthweaver isn't forbidden to Smugglers... It just doesn't have the right attributes to be best for them.

Technically, you can craft armor for a Smuggler as a Synthweaver, but that is only from rare modifiable schematics you get from Mission skills.

What I mean is there are some armor schematics that say they are for "Jedi Consular or Smuggler" and the armor has empty mod slots, so you can tailor the piece to you via mods.

Synthweaving makes: Willpower Light Armor (Consulars/Inquisitors), and Strength Medium and Heavy Armor (Knights/Warriors)

That's the flavor of clairty I was looking for. I realize there's the potential to gimp myself, but I imagine a nice orange set would work fine, then, I'll just custom slot everything for the smuggler when the time comes. I like the hooded robe look. Having a pair of blasters will amuse me.
