My opinion is the safest way to do this is to tilt the blade away from the fence. If the blade is tilted towards the fence you have a greater chance of binding and kick back.

There is another way to do it where you tilt the blade into a sacrificial fence basically creating a zero clearance bevel cut. but that has the potential of kicking back the cutoff so I don’t want to go into detail about it. If you look at my projects and see the lamp I made, this is how I made the bevel cuts on the lamp shade. I learned this method from an article in Wood magazine so if you are interested I can try and find that article to make sure I explain it properly so you can do it safely.
