Advice on can behind kitchen countertop?

When we moved to our home there were only kitchen cabinets on back wall. We ripped everything out and wrapped cabinets around and I wanted and painted them. My dad had to build 2 to fill in corner and one on top. In doing so he built a bit too big so now we have a gap behind countertop. In some places it's 1/2" other a whole inch. Any suggestions on getting rid of this gap without replacing countertops. Thanks

    Just put a board that size in there and get some curved molding over that.

    What about a tile finishing cap? You could also use a narrow shelf to sit right on top of the backsplash edge. Small spaces I generally caulk with a caulk gun. Just finished doing this to the tops of the kitchen cabinets where they don't meet the wall. This also requires painting the caulking so be sure to get a paintable caulk.

      A shelf along there is exactly what I was thinking but my husband thinks it will look bad. Thanks for the suggestion. That's what I'm going to try
