How to draw a double inclined leg

I am new to onshape, converting as so many from sketchup.
I 'm really happy that I find onshape and mostly I can get away with it.
Now I have a 'simple' double inclined leg to draw, but I don't find the right way to do it.

The thing is that the distances are not fixed. The height of the tabel is fixed, but the height of the leg depend's on the height of the table-top.
Rotate doesn't work and extrude also not because the direction of the extrude is not perpendicular with a plane.

Can someone help me with this. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, and welcome.

    I'd use a loft there, possibly with some variables to drive stuff if required. (So draw base on one sketch, create an offset plane for the top, 2nd sketch there, and finally loft between them.)

    Shout (with a link to your onshape document) if you get stuck.

    Cheers, Owen S.
