The horizontal one, just tilt you miter gage 10 degrees. The vertical one I would cut the normal way, with the blade set to the shallowest cut, and chisel out the angle. This is assuming that you’re using a table saw to cut your box joints.

If you’re using a fence to guide the piece over the bit, should be the same.

try setting up as if you are going to cut a featherboard, adjust angle accordingly.
