I'm a carpenter who's learning woodworking. I'm also into sawing logs and timber framing. My specialty seems to be natural-edged rustic furniture. I may post some pictures later on.

I'm getting better with time, and learning the value of finishing. I like raw sanded wood, but there are many reasons to apply a nice finish.
Here's a cedar bench I pulled off last year, no finishing:

Very nice. Looks like you used driftwood for the legs.
Did you use a tenon cutter?

Yes, it was standing dead cedar, so it really gave it that driftwood look. I did use a tenon cutter on that, I have the router-mounted style. I am wondering about the drill-mounted ones though, which do you prefer? You have some great stuff in your album!

I have, in my early 20's, made tenons by hand with a chisel. But I have more billable hours I have to put in now. Maybe I'll pick that up again when I retire.

I'll put up a picture from the good old days of hand-chiseled tenons soon, it's not on the device.

In the mean time, here's a sign I did two years ago out of tulip poplar:

Here's the aforementioned table I made with hand-made tenons. Granite top and cedar body. I made the it before I had many woodworking tools, so the whole thing was done in a rather unorthodox manner.

Very nice sign.
I'm not familiar with the router mounted style.
I have the ones that attach to a drill.
Thanks for your kind words.
Also nice very nice table you did.
