Any tips for cutting a stopped miter?

I have to cut a miter part way down a case side, but not all the way. My thought is to start the miter on the table saw and then cut by hand the rest of the way. That will work for one side of the case, but on the opposite side, I can't cut that angle on the table saw. Any thoughts? Thanks. Scott.

Assuming the joint is 90 degrees you might use a 45 degree router bit on a router table and route it as far as you can and then finish the miter with a sharp chisel.
