I built my shop about 3 years ago, and I don’t use 14 gauge at all. I used 12 for all of the 110 volt circuits and 10 gauge for the 220v circuits. I have a lot of wire and a lot of circuit breakers. Nothing that pulls many amps is on a circuit with another. If there are, they are not two pieces of equipment that I would be using at the same time. My 110v outlets are about 3-4’ apart, with a couple in the ceiling. I also have 12, four foot lights on two separate circuits by themselves.
