You have a number of possibilities. First you can buy a good straight edge like a BORA clamp that lets you turn it on an angle and cut along it with a jig saw or hand saw (depending on what your flavor is). Or you can save some money and clamp something nice and straight to the board on either side and make the cut that way. I did the long angle I had to do with a straight piece of MDF, two clamps and a jig saw. I then cleaned it up with a flush router bit, and I have also cleaned one with a hand plane. You can also make a tapering jig (look at for plans for one, he is one of my idols, he has videos on it and free plans for it) and cut it on the table saw. Just take your time. I practiced first on a few scrap pieces of plywood and when I was happy I made the cut. Have fun.
