I saw that type of joints on some fine furniture made by Nathan Day. He made these using a big shaper and a miter gauge. I tought of a sled. A 45 degre sled with a 1/4 inch spacer, just like a box joint sled except it hold the part at 45 degres. It works well. I’m working on a bar height table with angled legs and I need many strong 45 joints for the footrest and frame. Don’t worry, I cut longer pieces and I clamp them on the sled. On the 4th pic, it’s the 1st test cut. It only needed a depth adjusment.
