They look just fine to me..
" Are there better hinge types to use for this application? "
I would say yes,,, the pocket type below are very easy to put in place,plus you can adjust them in the XYZ ,that can be a pain with the type of hinge you are using
you can find them on eBay for the right price, the ones below cost me 34 cents each, when you buy them in the bulk...
Once you put a pair in it wil be the only hinge you will want to use but I will say the non-mortise type of hinge is a good one also..if you want to have the butt (barrel) showing...
I will say I will buy old garage sale cabinets just for the hinges
,remove the hinges and trash can the rest of the cabinet,many of the old cabinets have them in place,it's easy math, 15.oo to 20.oo dollars per.door 2 or more doors and you just paid for the old cabinet the norm..
not to say anything about the other hardware on the cabinet
You can make one or buy a jig to put them in place with your plunge router, many shy away from the pocket type hinge because it cost so much for the tools to put them in place...but it can be done cheap, they don't need to be the high ends hinges that cost 12.oo dollars a pair..as you can see.. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?p...er=hinge%20jig http://www.rockler.com/gallery.cfm?O...Select=Details

Doc, you right, they match the bench pretty dm good.
Just takes allot of glue when using scraps.
2 drawers to go on the left side. 1 drawer front done.
Don't know much about all the hinge choices. Used this type, routed back side in flush so there is less gap when the door is closed.
Don't know if I had to , they were called "flush mount". (blurry close up pic) Attachment 18989
