Default Angled Lid?

So, I've pretty much got your standard box down pat?! So I would like to try my hand at a box with an angled top. Could you all help me out with how to figure the compound miters needed to accomplish this. Thanks in advance for your help!!

Thanks, Stick!! I have a nice set of beveled router bits, I'd like to break in, but I could use my miter saw. Do you have any of those files in English though? No, just kidding that is what I was looking for.

I trust you are using a router table...
the table saw calculator and you should be good to go...
the angle setting for the blade will be angle on the router bit...
