Default Best way to cut 45 degree end joints

Am going to make some small boxes that I want to miter the ends. I would love to know what everyone thinks the best way to do that is?

I'd use a chop saw or a circular saw with the lines marked with a speed square.
If all else fails, you can go old-school and use a simple miter box.

Thanks. I use my chop saw for everything and was wondering if there was a better way. Kind of glad you said chop saw. Thanks

Not sure if this was part of the question but make sure you leave the cuts a bit longer than expected and cut them down to fit perfect. I always tend to cut things too short and have to get more wood.
