Routing a Rabbet on a Compound Miter Picture Frame

I have made a lot of picture frames over the last few years and am now making some compound miter frames where the sides angle in at 12 degrees. My puzzle is how to angle the stock as it goes through the router table for the rabbet on the back side that holds the glass, mat, and print, etc. I am pretty certain I need to make a sled, preferably adjustable, to create the proper angle for the materials as they go in. If anyone can pass along ideas, tip or tricks, for this, I would be grateful. Thanks.

They make a 12 degree bit

I don't know if this will work for you but here's a 12 degree router bit:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

You might set up a dado set on a 12 degree angle and rabbet the molding before you miter it.

Steve, the dado blades at an angle would definitely work and I can easily match the tilt of the blades to a piece of mitered stock. I get so used to using the router table for this part of the frame making that I forget about alternatives. Thanks.

woodnthings, thanks for the link. I like anything by Freud (about half of my bits are from them.) Unfortunately, it would still leave the glass resting on an angle, but I think the solution below will work. I've got a decent set of Diablo stacked dados to put to use tomorrow.
