New and need help w/ window stool
 
Hello: I'm Chuck:
I need help w/ cutting a window stool. I put in a window and can't figure out how to cut the stool to match the angle. (The piece that goes up against the window from the inside above the apron) I know there is a jig for a router to do so, I haven't been able to find one.
Thank you.

Use your table saw to cut the correct pitch or angle. Then cut it to size and notch it accordingly. That's the easiest way I know how to do it. Most stools you would buy at the box stores usually have a 15 or 22.5 degree angle already cut for you.

Use an adjustable T-Bevel.
