trying to put a miter on a structural member

Hi All,

I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to miter the end of a structural beam.  This is probably a simple task and I'm missing something.  I have a W14x90 and I need to put a 2.09 degree miter on the left end.  I basically drew a line at the proper length of the beam, then used the "structural member" feature under "weldments".  Once I got the beam on the screen, I started a sketch on the left end at the outside of the bottom flange and drew a line at the correct degree.  But now how do I cut the beam to the miter?  I thought maybe an extrude cut by picking the line or making a new plane at the 2.09 degree off the RIGHT plane but couldn't get what I need.  Any help is appreciated!  Thanks.
