Most GFCI outlets can be "master" outlets. Being that, if its the first outlet in the circut, anything "downstream" will be protected as well. Or you can use a GFCI breaker and standard outlets and still have protection.

Don't go cheap! Use 20amp rated outlets, not the 99cent units. Also run 12 gauge wire, and you'll be able to run a 110v mig from anywhere in the shop. Same with HD tools like a worm drive saw, table saws and anything else that has a 15amp or more draw.

Plan for the most extreme. You'll end up using it someday. Wish I had ran water and phone lines when I did the power!! I buried 1 conduit instead of 4. Time to dig this spring !
