I am not a very experienced woodworker but I saw a Japanese woodworker use a différent method to make a 90 degrees mortise and tenon joint with round poles.
1. Make the mortise.
2. Make the tenon a bit shorter then the final result and as if it was to be inserted in squared timber.
3. Put them together.
4. Use a scribing tool to copy the curve on the tenoned pole.
5. Remove and finish the joint.
This reduces the distance between the model curve and the copy, reducing the risk of mistake. The man had no spirit level on the tool, only by sight. Does it recall something to y’all?

It's a strange re-configuration (see below) of the models sold in the 1970s, but amazing to see it still in production. Since as a kid it seemed logical that butter, sugar, and white flour combined together would be yummy (!) I routinely would steal some baking time on my sister's Easy Bake to make the final conversion. :-) Little did I know that years later, I would just be adding crushed pecans to the recipe to obtain those holiday 'tea cookies'. .....and also that my fancy-pants air-fryer had more humble beginnings. ;-)
