My “Wood Shop” is housed in the old hangar, that we built in 2008. It’s not really old, but I call it old, as I’m not able to fly anymore. Any way, when I was having electricity run to it, I told the electrician that I only wanted a 8’ florescent light and one outlet, as I already had a shop and didn’t intend to work in the hangar.
Fast forward, I don’t do woodworking in the Shop, as that’s where I’m working on two ’66 Mustangs and keep three antique motorcycles, so I do my nasty metal and woodworking in the hangar.
Yeah, I should have looked to the future and had more circuits run, as I can’t run the heater on cold days, and run power tools. :-( Gonna have to run, at least, one more outlet circuit.
So, if you’re gonna build a shop, or retrofit a building, make sure you have enough “power.”
