Many people use a router jig with this, often horizontally mounted and/or with bearing guided bits.

The way you did this is a very popular way as well. I would make sure that you get a good wood rasp (as opposed to a file) to do the work. It shouldn’t take too long with the right tool(s).

BTW, I normally chisel the mortise square rather than to round the tenon…it becomes quick and easy with practice. I feel there is less guessing that way. And besides, I feel it’s an important skill to have when those tenons become the “through” variety.

Or, you could chicken out and just buy one of them fancy Festool Domino things. ;)
