Hi everyone!

Any idea on how to incline the leg of the table as shown by the picture? The leg is a sweep of the same family, created on a vertical plane of course.

Best practice since you have 4 legs is a nested family.

Is it possible to create a reference plane passing through 2 reference lines? 

Even using nested families my problem would be the same. I have to rotate the leg, first, 45° on the Z axis and then 20° on the axis passing through the top of the leg...

Rotating in plan is easy, you use any plan drawing. The key to the inclination is to place a reference plane in the direction of the inclination, passing by center of the leg. Then you name that reference plane, and select it from "Set plane". You should orient a view to this reference plane. At this point you can do you rotation of your object to incline it as you require. 

You will need a longer leg. You can make all sort of planes, or use help solids to make views coincident/aligned to faces to work in non orthogonal planes.
