The only across clue I've done so far!

Today's puzzle is a gem. It's not as daunting as it at first looks and well worth persevering with. The completed across answers may not be real words, but you know they comprise 2 overlapping real words, which in many answers are pretty easy to identify.

Peterm, your comments inspired me to have another look at this. Am (quite) enjoying it, but think I might have gone wrong.
15 D. Serve e.g. bumpkins devouring what's mostly underdone (8,2 words) ee??????
10 D. Cheap labourer, an outstanding one cutting big trees in pieces (12)
s?st?r??????
It'd be good to know if I've made a mistake somewhere.

You've got a couple of letters wrong malone. 15dn starts with b. You should look for a less well known meaning of bum(p)kin in Chambers. 10dn starts with g. Non-English word, but well known.

Peterm, thanks for all that. I've fixed 14 A, know what 19 D is and am away to work on 15 D.
