You should start out with the ogee bit at final height and use the fence to increase the depth of the cut. To do this, you would make a pass completely around the piece - the use of a backer block is always a good idea with boards of this width - with the fence set so that you take no more than 1/2 of the depth of the profile in one pass. Cherry is especially prone to burning, so I always make 1 last pass that is the equivalent of 1 or 2 layers of blue painters tape thick. I accomplish this by applying the layer or layers of blue tape to the fence and then removing them for my last pass.
