Cutting Tenons

I spent a couple of enjoyable hours this afternoon cutting tenons on a batch of Hazel stretchers that ive been drying out for about six weeks. In the end i cut sixty tenons, albeit using a tenon cutter in the brace, still a bit of graft involved though, in some cases before i could cut the tenon,  i ran the Hazel through a rounding plane to give a nice white stretcher, as opposed to the rich chestnut colour of the bark on ones so i have a choice of of colours at my disposal when i next build a chair or stool.
