I want to bevel the edge of a piece of wood and have started with a 15 degree router bit. The angle is okay but I want more wood taken off at that angle, i.e. from the edge of the wood the bevel only went into the piece about 1/4” at the most. I thought about using a 22 or 25 degree but if I am correct, all this is going to do is change the angle. The piece of wood that I want to bevel the edge is about 4 inches wide and I would like the bevel to be about 3/4 in length and the degree could be 15 or 20 degrees. How would I accomplish my objective? Hope this is clear enough.

use a TS, or get a longer router router bit what you would have to do is raise it up till you get the 3/4” your looking for.
