When restoring a set of dining room chairs, I needed to replace a leg rail that required drilling angled dowel holes into the end of the new rail. This jig made drilling the holes a breeze. Make the radiused slot in the jig's face using a router trammel. This makes it possible to adjust the jig's upright to the exact angle you need.
