Hi Charles. Everybodys needs and preferences are different. Personally I don’t like having the wiring conduit exposed just for looks and future painting and upkeep, and it is a dust catcher. You could always make a mark on the ceiling or near the floor to indicate the presence of wiring. This will also allow you to have shelves and other storage pieces tight against the wall wherever you want. I guess any advantage always has some disadvantages. I installed 4 socket outlets in several places and even on the ceiling over my tablesaw and vacuum. this has worked out very well because I have an outlet available anywhere in the shop and I use all of them a lot too. That said, you have a lot of experience with working in a shop, so I say do what you think is best and what will work best for you.
