Create a drawing of the face of an object

I have modeled two parts that are inclined about 10 deg (they are mirror images of each other). I intend to cut each out from wood (e.g a 1x12) and connect the two parts with a hinge.

 So, I am trying to create a drawing of the face of the part, so I can print it and use it as a template to cut the shape from the wood board. 

The problem is that the part is added to the drawing at an angle which doesn't give me the correct shape.

How can I create a view of the part that is normal to the face?

One workaround is to create a section lengthwise through the object, but that seems indirect. I'm new to OnShape, so Im hoping to learn a little bit more with this question.
