Question for Electric Guitar builders on neck angle

I know there are some electric guitar builders on the forum. I'm considering a foray into making an electric instrument and I'm wondering...

Is the angle of the neck established by routing the bottom of the pocket at an angle, or is the angle cut into the heel of the neck? I know there's shimming, but I'm assuming that's just fine adjustment and the initial angle is machined in the neck or pocket.

Can one of you with experienced let me know how this works?
