Buy and read at least two books on home wiring, and then post back with specific questions. This is not something that anyone can answer properly in a forum like this. There is far too much information required.

Yeah, that's a little cart before horse here! Even after reading books on wiring, there are still some tough design issues a DIY might not know about for something like this.

First question: what wire did you run, how long is it, and what size breaker is it fed from? Is it 120V or 240V? Ground? Neutral?

Also, is your shop inside your house or in a separate building? There are different requirements for outbuildings than subpanels within a building.
