Go traditional then and half lap joints at the corners and could use inch dowel as you drop each beam on top of each other to lock in the middle sections . Make up a jig if you go that route.Are these external walls or internal ?

External Les, cabin will have large overhangs and some decent preservatives applied to the timber. It’s on an elevated base on a slope so air flow will be good around and under it.

Just use the traditional half lap joint and depending on the length i would be putting a hidden seal between the beams and a couple of inch dowels along the span.

save yourself a lot of grief, rout a groove into each face and fit a plywood spline, or if your really bothered fit 2, easier than finding someone with a moulder and the right knives to do it
