Don't know about lathes, but Lee Valley sells "tenon cutters" for drills:
Woodcraft carries them as well, so you could see them in a store.
I think the old "hollow augers", for use in a bit brace, would do the same thing.
A cheaper alternative, for use by hand, is a dowel rounder:
I have a couple of these which work OK. An old "rounder plane" is essentially the same thing if you can find one.
