Drawing angles with precise degrees

I want to make some jigs in my shop and need to cut different angles to do this

This reads like a statement but I’ll interpret this as looking for direction.

2 ways that I’m aware of how you could approach this:

  1. Using the pen tool, as you make subsequent line segments the angle from the previous line segment is shown at the bottom of the application. It’s difficult to get this exactly right because there’s no way to dial-in the exact numbers but doable.
  2. You could manually create individual line segments. Then using the rotation tool, rotate each line segment to the desired angle. Then manually move the line segments to align them at the end points. Then Edit->Auto-join selected shapes.
