    I like having the garage bench attached to the wall. Recently I rebuilt it, lowering it a few inches and making it a few inches shallower. 30" deep is good but in a 1 car it may be more than optimal.

    If it's the motor and you really don't want to mess with it, buy a new motor. You...

    Cutting the back down an inch should do it. Holes seem like a less appropriate solution. A full drawer might block them, and they look curious.

    Have you found a piano hinge that won't rust? In any case I'd go for fully waterproof. A coat of grease then a fastened down seal, belt and suspenders.
