well, round is a problem. unless you have a lathe with an 8ft bed (and you wouldnt want to if you did)

They sell them already shaped like that I believe, try a farm supply.

I suppose you could cut a squared shape that would fit into the round hole well enough.

those are common split rail fence cutters

Grizzly has some and many others offer them:


Item# T24583
1-1/2" Radius Shoulder Tenon Cutter

$119.95





Item# T24592
1-1/2" Radius Shoulder Tenon Cutter

$149.95





Item# T24594
3/4" 60 Degree Tenon Cutter

$239.95
$191.95





Item# T24589
5/8" Radius Shoulder Tenon Cutter

$119.95
$95.95

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Never used these, but I recalled Rockler has some tools that are made for this purpose.

if only doing one or two, a spade bit w/drill (mortise), and a chisel (tenon) will work.

Lee Valley/ Veritas has a bunch in different sizes. As I recall, Veritas originated them a long while ago. They even have a DVD on making rustic furniture. Here is the pointer to the Power Tenon Cutters on their site:http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/pag...80,42288,42299
and here is the pointer to the DVD http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/pag...88,45539,44506

Have fun. You will need a good power drill to spin the cutter if you are going to make a lot. They say that they can be spun with a brace, but...

Ed the problem with a brace is you need a good spunner.
