Easiest is to increase the depth a little for the final cut. You don't need the fence, let the bearing do the work. You'll know after the first one if you need to do it in multiple stages. Clamp a board over the end where the bit will exit or you could blow the grain out there. Have the board's edge flush along the top and the end of the board flush (or close) with the end.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
