What type of tool ???

Yes I want to build a few bluebird house's and I have the plans to do it and it is all straight cuts except for the sides which have a 80 degree angle. I have a 1" x 6" x 4' board and I have to cut a piece 19 1/4 for both sides then I have to cut that in the middle at 80 degree angle to get the sides. My question I have a circular saw to cut the straight cuts but what can I use to make the 80 degree cuts. It would be easy if I had a mitre saw but I don't so what could I use or do they sell a manual mitre saw that would cut a 1" x 6". Thanks for any help on this Steve

If I understand your question correctly, set your circular saw at 10 degrees and saw the edge to leave 80 degrees (a straight edge is 90 degrees).
Good luck!
