A Birdmouth joint is commonly used in roof construction, but it can also be used for boxes or other kinds of woodworking where you want a 45° conection that is easy to glue and does not slip like, say, a mitre joint.

There are specialised bits for the router table to make these, but you can also create them on the table saw.
