Could someone explain the best way to power a PC fan? I thought I could do it with a cell phone charger.

A cell phone charger

Or any other DC "wall wart". I used a 9V one from an old cordless phone. Look through your junk drawer...

Nice flow control Perl.

Was wanting one, but they weren't (aren't?) available in stainless.

I meant how to connect them, did you just cut the cable at the end and sodder them together?

Twist each stranded cable tightly, put them next to each other, screw on a wire nut, secure the nut with electrical tape.

Or use an inline compression crimp.

Yup, you can solder if you want but cheap wire nuts work fine. It's low voltage so there's nothing dangerous. Clip off the connector, strip a little bit of each wire and you're good to go. No worries about getting zapped from 5V DC so you can do it while it's plugged in if you want to make sure the connections are good.

I'm in the process of building my collar. I used a 1 x 12 and reinforced the corners with some metal brackets. Did you guys stain the inside of the collar? Is this necessary? Pros/Cons? I was thinking staining the inside might be better for durability purposes, but I am not sure if it is really necessary.

I wouldn't worry about staining, but I would certainly apply some clearcoat sealant / acryllic, just to help protect the wood over time from moisture.
