Wiring a Garage

Hi peopple and thanks for listening,
I just built a 28X36 garage which I am going to use for a shop. I plan on having 6 Floresent fixture, 6 110 volt outlets and 2 220 volt outlets. I will mainly use drils, skill saw and other various light duty tools for 110 volts and for 220 my air compressor (recomended 40amp breaker) - and my welder (recomended 60amp breaker). My garage is 140 feet from the house. I have a 200 amp meter and disconnet mounted to the side of the house. Any suggestions on the size panel to put in the garage and how to get power to it? Also, What size wire to run to garage panel?

This is a FAQ and there are quite a few variables like attached, detached etc.

Do a search first and narrow it down to specific questions you may not understand.
