The square pin is held upright in the dadoed board and a plug cutter is used to cut the tenon. Clean up the cheeks with a sharp chisel and shape the pin to the desired shape leaving one side untouched. When drilling the tenon I made sure that the same side of the pin was facing the fence on each cut.

It's in the book Michael!
If only there was a tool that could hold the square stock and spin it so that you could hold, say, a chisel against it while it was spinning, and make part of it round.

Still, in the absence of a lathe, your technique worked pretty well, Eiji.
I don't have as many Festools as Fred. Or Marcou's, or Brese's, or Lie-Nielsen's, or Lee Valley's, or Blue Spruce's, or Harold and Saxon's, or...
