I would have a small breaker panel installed in the garage with 2 50A 240V and several 120V breakers. Some for 30A and some for 20A. From there, you can surface wire outlets wherever you want in the garage.
In your garage shop, you can make 2 daisy chains of 240V outlets each because generally you wont be using 2 heavy hitters at the same time on the same circuit. This would allow for 1 major power hungry sucker like a planer and 1 large heater/AC unit at the same time. Each having their own breaker.
The 120 stuff, you can run the several circuits where ever you want and have plenty power to spare
The question on how to get this power to the garage is another problem I am not there to see how your electrical system is connected and located.
So if you hired an electrician to do this part and get the AC to the garage, you can surface the rest yourself.
Anyway, the above is to just give you the basic idea. It can be modified anyway you want.
