Why buy several different sized pencil-sharpener type log tenon cutters when you can just buy one E-Z Log Tenon Cutter and adjust it to cut the size tenon you need? The E-Z Log Tenon Cutters are available in either a 45-Degree or 90-Degree chamfer, and can be adjusted to cut 1" up to 3" diameter tenons at the ends of logs and branches. Any 1/2" electric drill will work. You can adjust the tenon diameter to fit the mortise bit you already have.

If you have ever used one of those pencil-sharpener type cutters like we have, you may have noticed that it is difficult to hold your drill steady during the cut, and often the tenon will turn out gouged and not consistent in diameter. A little knot in the wood, or a distraction can throw it all off. You want a nice round tenon for a tight fit into the mortise. I still use my pencil-type cutters for small projects, under an inch tenon. Once I found out about the E-Z Tenon Cutters, there's no going back. It is the only tool I sell, and I guarantee you'll be happy too.
With the E-Z Log Tenon Cutter, you must first drill a pilot hole at the ends of your log rails. After that, insert the E-Z Tenon Cutter into you drill, place the guide bar into the pilot hole, and cut the tenon. It is just that easy. Check out the videos below.
