Rotating parts to aling an edge

Just learning ketchup. I left out the "s" since my work so far makes me think of the splortch sound when you smack the end of the bottle.

Anyway.... here's a basic sketch of a super basic TS sled. Can anyone tell, or even better point to a vid, how I make the edges of the hardboard line up with the 3/4" stock?

Thanks

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway!

I tried to look at your file, but I've got an older version of Sketchup and couldn't open it.

FYI, in the future, instead of linking the *.skp file, you can export the file as a picture. Just click File, Export, 2D Graphic and you can save it as a *.jpg to upload here.

Hope you dont mind but i played with your file. Looks like the two shapes werent actually parallel with each other. What i did was to take the rotate tool, select the corner on the base that intersected with the fence, and rotate it so it matched up

Thanks for the tips; while you did that, I realized I was trying to do the entire thing in one operation. It is a lot easier when you first match an edge.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway!
