Logwolf,

I think I understand your question.

If you have a table saw, as an alternative to trying to figure the compound miter angle, switch the material to 2x or larger. Cut the material with 45 degree miters just as if you were going to fit it as the drawing shows. Take it to the table saw and cut the angle to get the slope on the top of the material so it shed water.

Yes, that’s the idea I’m trying to explain. However, don’t want to use 2 x’s. But I think I can accomplish this by sloping my bandsaw table down. It does not have to be a 45 degree angle. Thank you for giving that idea. Appreciate it.
