How to make this a solid?

I'm trying to make a solid, 3-dimensional triangular wedge. I'm not sure how to turn my sketch into a solid, since extruding a triangle would make an object that has the "same" thickness down the axis. Rather, I'm trying to make it taper to a point.



Any suggestions or advice?

    Actually I found my answer lol! I have to loft the end triangle towards the vanishing point in the center.

    make 2 triangular extruded shapes overlapping and use a Boolean intersect.

    I think I'd extrude one triangle:



    cut with another one:
