How to Install an Electrical Outlet

We only have one electrical outlet in our garage and it was located far from where we needed it, so we opted to add another ourselves. This new outlet will be located right below our workbench so we can plug in all of our power tool chargers. See our blog post for a complete tutorial.
I started by locating a source for the new outlet's power.
Next, I cut a hole in the wall for the new outlet.
I ran the cable from the power source to the new outlet location.
The new outlet has the cable ready to be roughed-in.
