Bevels are like chamfers but the entire edge is slanted and they are used for decorative and structural purposes and must be smooth with sharp edges. Short bevels can be sanded using the procedure outlined for chamfers except for miter gauge and table settings. Long bevels can best be sanded using the fence in off-set position.

Bevels are extensively used in joints, particularly the corners of chests and frames made of veneered hardwood.
