I wouldn't worry about the little gap. I did something simular with wood trim under my cupboards. Still didn't like the look when sitting at the table so I filled the space with 3/4" mdf painted black with holes cut for the lites and routered lines in the other side for the wires to run thru.

Neal, would you care to post some pictures so we can see?

I was thinking yesterday about using silicone (clear) to "glue" the piecesto the cupboards..

Perhaps PL glue? If I use a product of some sort, it needs to be really thick so the gravity doesnt pull the pieces down and I dont end up with a gap, or worst, the pieces move sideways and no longer align with the cabinet bottom..

I took a picture of it when I did it but with a black backsplash you couldn't pick out the detail.
I like the look of what you have, I wouldn't worry about the little gap between the trim and the cupboard. If you want the screws to dissapear, drill a 1/8 hole and countersink the hole with a 3/8 drill and install with 1/2x6 metal screw.

It is all about style ... I recently installed high-end knob hardware (single hole) and we settled on a 4 1/2" placement off the bottom edge for the upper doors.

Your style of pulls is usually set with a gap at the bottom for the best visual. Here is a pic that might help:

Trying to think this problem through ... a pic from underneath would help. You need a 1/2" lip to conceal the LED strip. The metal trim might provide the lip ... or not.

Your helpers are standing by!
