Suggestion for "Sticky"

I've noticed in the tools forum there is a sticky about air compressors because of the volume of questions about them. I was thinking that a pro could put together a sticky about running electrical service to garages/workshop. It seems that about once a week some poor soul is trying to figure the right cable, how deep to bury it, what amp service to consider etc. I was in this boat a few weeks ago and this forum helped me out a great deal.
I don't know how feasable it would be considering different codes in different areas but it's a thought...

There are a number of web sites that have excellent information about garage and workshop subpanels. The very top sticky on this forum contains many links. The third link in the third post in that thread points to a site with excellent information about this topic.

Here's a link directly to the page within that site that discusses detached garages and workshops.
