answer 2
I am a hobbyist, and part time electrician, I would NOT recommend putting two of these heaters on a single circuit. It draws a lot of amps, you risk the possibility of an overload, and a fire, plus you would have to use a thicker wire, and when attempting to hard wired that thicker wire into the heater, it would almost appear impossible to work, bend and mount that size wire within the heater box, my biggest fear would be overloading the circuit and risk a potential fire.

answer 2
My garage is about 600 square feet, insulated walls and ceiling (just fiberglass, nothing exotic), plus R-18 insulated garage doors. 17,000 btu works fine, but add a small fan blowing downward to pull the stratified hot air down to the concrete slab. Getting the concrete warm takes 24 hours, but after that the shop is comfortable for all kinds of work. The stored heat in the concrete is valuable, since if you are doing painting, spraying, and handling anything flammable I turn off ALL heat sources and air out the garage for a few minutes, and the concrete holds the heat until I can put the heater on again.

Question

Can the CZ220 heater be used in wood shop?

Under General Safety Information in installation instructions - #15 specifies that this heater is not suitable for use in hazardous locations...areas where gasoline, paint, or flammable liquids are used or stored. Since I use stains and finishes in the shop, is that a problem? Or is a two-car garage-size shop big enough to dilute any fumes that might be produced?

I don.t know what the official recommendation is but I have used this heater in my wood shop for several years and have had no problems, There is no glowing heating element It heats internally and transfers the heat through a heat exchanger much like a home furnace, I have used the same chemicals as you and am problem free.
