Yes you are right, the mortise and tenons take a lot of time if you want to stay on precision. I just watched a video about the dowel max, we have similar jigs like from wolfcraft tools. It certainly would have been a timesaving alternative, I also might have had used pocket holes.
For joints where you have more room (not for small frame constructions) I prefer biscuit joins (maxbe also doubled) which are extremely quick to make if you have a biscuit jointer.

AndyL In British English it would be a chest of drawers. Here a bureau would typically have a fold-down writing desk as well as drawers.

vchiarelli Daniel - I've heard it referred to as "a chest of drawers" or a "bureau".

From Wikipedia: A chest of drawers, also called (especially in North American English) a bureau, is a piece of furniture that has multiple parallel, horizontal drawers stacked one above another.

Daniel80 Thanks so much for your kind comments

I got a bit crazy with this project, because I got to check and measure so many times to stay on high accuracy.

I actually designed it to fit in my bathroom as storage for any bathroom stuff, but now I keep it in my living room


I got a question for you guys and would be pretty happy if you could help me out:

What is the right english term for this piece of furniture?
The best fit for me was 'drawer cabinet'. Is there any term which may fit better?


Thank you so much guys.

papasombre Hi, Daniel.
Nice drawer cabinet. I really like it. You did it all with only one wireless drill
