Converting a 2-car garage to a shop for wood projects. Mainly adding outlets for 110v. Considering if I should add a 220v outlet.

Personally, if you are serious about new wiring, I would suggest:

  • A 4-gang 120v outlet every 6ft along walls (I did every 15ft and had to go back and add more)
  • A 240v outlet on at least two walls, and/or one overhead.
  • And yes, add a sub-panel as well.

I know, it sounds like a lot right now, but it sure beats having to come back and add later (like I did).
