Framing basement wall at an angle

I'm working to frame a basement wall. The wall is at about a 45 degree angle. What is the proper way to frame this corner? I don't have a table saw to rip a 2x4. What options do I have? Any ideas? Thanks!

Tilt your circular saw blade and rip your 2x4's.

You do not need to rip the 2x4 to frame a 45 degree wall. The plates intersect at 45 degrees but the studs can be installed as full studs, they do not have to be ripped. If it is an outside corner the drywall will span from the last stud to meet the drywall coming from the other side. The only reason you need to rip anything would be to put solid blocking in the outside corner. Most corner bead is glued on now so you do not need solid blocking for that.
