Rate my raised bed /diy/. First time gardening that not 1 tomato in a pot. Have cherry tomatoes, full size tomatoes, bell, jalapeño, and seranno peppers, onion sets, and eggplant. Bush beans in the back in some tilled earth but I'm iffy on them. Any input is appreciated.

Hi /diy/, I want to start making things out of wood but I have no idea where to start. I've googled basic tools for beginners and read the woodgears.ca page for plebs and all that, but my problem is really putting this into real life.
Should I buy a sawhorse or a work bench/table? Apparently I should make my own, but if I do, what the hell do I cut my wood on? And how do I know what wood to use (type, thickness, etc.)? I know I want to try making a table but I don't have plans for any of it; no measurements, no idea what kind of wood I'd want. Not sure if I should get a jigsaw or a circular saw or both.
I have a couple questions regarding protection as well: Do I need any special respirators or masks if I'm just cutting stuff with a jigsaw or a circular saw? How loud are any of these motorized saws - should I get ear protection?
I did woodworking for a few months in highschool so I have a bit of knowledge of how things work, but it was an established woodshop with everything I'd need already there.

Listen, not much of an electro guy. Yet.
I'm into chemistry and I'm playing with electrolisys reactions, or at least i want to.
I need SOMETHING that will convert my AC current in DC current with known voltage and current.
For the little i know, a recifier is used to convert AC to DC, yet current and voltage are variables that i can't understand how to control in this process. So, i ask to you:
Can such a thing as a rectifier-voltage-current-controler-o-tron be built?
If yes, which is it's real name for googling purposes?
Can an old PC power suply be adapted to the purpose?
