Trying to do a slot inside a frame
Okay so I have a very basic issue but i'm rather new to this software, I wish to do a frame, the sketch (lets assume is top plane) is as such: 2 rectangles one inside the other, the first extrude makes it all expand, lets say .05 the second extrude expands only the perimeter between the two, lets say .1, then I have a rectangle very thin - but halfway between the widths of the two rectangles which comprise the frame borders on the Front Plane. I wish to subtract to a certain depth out of the middle of the model, however when I draw it on the front plane, it stays directly in the middle of the model and I cannot reposition it toward the edge or offset it (it only moves on the front plane) so I want to subtract so there is as slot visible on one side but not on the other - if I try a blind extrude it will only take 1 side out to the slot, but only starting from the middle, if I do it symmetric I will end up exposing both sides. Is there a simpler way to subtract a slot out of a frame or other object with only 1 extrude from an opening to a specified depth?
