Can't figure out how to cut compound angle

I'm a high school student learning how to use solidworks and my teacher gave us a problem where we have to make a horizontal milling jig to cut out general cutting bits. So far he know what the bit looks like we just can't cut the compound angle required on the bit.

An alternative method is to insert a Plane and use an Extruded Cut

both techniques work. however the fast and easiest with full control is too:

-insert sketch points (fully defined driven by dims)
-create a plane using the sketch points.
-insert, cut, ****hidden gem*** choose cut WITH SURFACE and choose the plane.

your compound angle is now cut, and can be controlled with your fully defined points and plane. Remembers planes are in a sense like a surface, meaning they lack thickness, hence why you can use a plane in CUT WITH SURFACE.
