how do i figure the angles on a compound miter? i need to make a cap for a pillar that is accurate. it is square, 20" on the bottom and 29" on top. 1/2" material. i'm stumped. i need to make it for patterns for an actual build.

Would the angle tool help you? It can be found at DETAIL>MEASURE>ANGLE TOOL Other than that I don't know, I was never any good at doing angles in math. Not to mention how how many years its been since I been in school. :D

why not make 2 boxes, one at 20" and one at 29" and put them into the background
layers to use ast a template and just reaarage the geometry to fit?
