A 45 deg miter bearing bit at progressively deeper settings for each pass to keep from chipping, will give you good results, if you just want a 45 deg bevel. Climb cutting a short distance at the opposite end before cutting the bulk of it will help too. I've made edges like this colonial signs and sign posts using this method with excellent results, but usually used a spoke shave at the ends to produce a lead in and lead out bevel longer than the curve produced by the miter bit. If you want the long lead in and out, cut the straight part of the bevel first, then just match the bevel angle as you use the spoke shave to make the desired lead in and lead out ends
