Hello rbendici and thank you for your question.


You will need to measure the gap between the end of the cabinet run and the wall at both the top and the bottom. Your space may not be perfect, so you will need to taper the filler strip to properly fill the space.  Cut the filler strip from the backside following the “outside” of your cutting line (drawn from the top to the bottom).   Test fit the filler strip and plane the cut edge to perfectly fit your space.  A tight fit is desired in the space between the cabinet and the wall.  Follow the instructions under Step 7 and illustration F to attach (predrill and screw) the filler. 


Best wishes on your project
