Topic tags/keywords: question shaping

I am building a table with legs that splay in one direction 5 degrees. The aprons on the slanted side will also be tilted 5 degrees. I am planning to cut a 5 degree angle into the top and bottom of the aprons on making them a rhombus shape. I want to scratch bead the bottom of the apron but the angle to the tools fence would not be square. I feel like a have a couple options: scratch the bead and then sneak up on cuttting the angle, Only cut the angle on the top of the apron to make it flush with the top of the legs and leave the bottom square, or make an angled fence for the scratch tool similar to what you would have to make a raised panel with a hand plane. I’m still a newbie. Is there a traditional way a splayed leg apron should be or a very easy solution I am overlooking?

For me, a visual/picture/drawing would help to visualize what you are trying to say?
