Doing a cut on 2 faces at different angles in solidworks?

Robin,
This method works as well and avoids the need to delete faces:
I uploaded a Step file so you can preview the results.

  1. Step 1:

    Select the two faces and knit them together.
    Actually, You can skip this step , and use the Offset command on these faces instead. I'm not sure why I always knit before I offset... Maybe a really old version required it?

  2. Step 2:

    Select the new surface and offset it by the depth you want the cut to be (1.5mm)

  3. Step 3:

    Cut - Extrude your door profile up to the offset surface

  4. Step 4:

    The end result looks much cleaner at the intersection of the various faces.

  5. Step 5:

    You don't need to do this, but another option is editing your original sketch and extruding it as a thin feature (up to surface like the above method). I think offsetting the sketch like you did is the better option. Just keep this method in mind for future use if you need it.
