12 Degree angle

I need to put a 12 Degree angle on a one edge of 2 pieces of 3/4 plywood that have been glued together. The edge is not straight, but it is in a small v shape.
I am wondering if I could make a jig that was set to some angle. Attach it to the base of my router and then use a straight bit to cut the angle.

Since 12 degrees isn't a huge angle, the only problem I see is the length of the bit. If you "jack up" the router to get the desired angle, it will pull the bit up, too. If the bit cannot be extended far enough, you won't get a clean cut.
