After reading a myriad of posts regarding how lumberjocks have wiring their shops with 220V, I’ve decided there are as many ways to do it as their are shops! If you will indulge me one more question about the subject I would be grateful: First, a little background. I am looking to wire a small outbuilding for my tablesaw and a few other tools to give myself a dedicated woodshop. I would like to have 3 circuits…Lights (110
15A), TS (220 20A), and outlets (110 @ 20A). The building itself is only about 10 ft from my house, but the main panel is approx 50’ away by way of crawlspace. My question is what would be the more acceptable (and cost effective) way to run the wire. run 3 circuits from the main box to the outbuilding…romex in the crawl space? or would putting a sub panel in the garage to feed the three circuits be a better way to go. A complication may be that the building sits on a slab of concrete (old RV pad) making the use of a ground rod at the shop difficult. I would appreciate any advice those clearly more skilled than myself can give. Even if there is a different prospective I am not seeing?
Thanks to all.
