Sheet Metal Truncated Pyramid

Trying to sketch a sheet metal  Laptop Stand. It has angles in both direction, (compound.angle) like a truncated Pyramid Just wondering the best way to go around this exercise.

    Probably easiest to model it as a solid block then use the sheet metal convert tool to select the faces and bend edges to get the outside shape. Then add other details like flanges and holes.

    Thanks Neil. As a quick work round I have taken out one of the angles.....makes it a lot easier (so now just a  right angle).....I think it going to work:)) and a nice little update on sheet metal for high school:))
