I spent over 30 years donning a respirator at work, I’ve worn quite a few. For my woodworking needs I wear a 3M model – 3M Large Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 7503/37083(AAD). I like it because it is light and with little to no resistance on exhalation, fits me well and cleans easily. Also there is a very wide selection of high quality filters available for this model depending on the task at hand, e.g. organic vapors, dust etc.. I use these for dust, 3M 2097 P100 Particulate Filter with Organic Vapor Relief. Make sure whatever you buy fits your face well – if it does not it will leak and you may as well not wear one at all. You may have to kiss a lot of toads before you find the size that fits you well.
