Wall cabinet mounted next to pantry cabinet

I am installing cabinets in my kitchen. The old ones were original and falling apart.

I have a 90" pantry cabinet installed next to the fridge opening. To it's right, I will be installing a 12" wall cabinet and 12" base between the pantry and stove/range.

My dilemma is, the pantry cabinet is base cabinet depth. The face frame of these cabinets extends beyond the side panels about a quarter of an inch. If I install the base cabinet, the face frames touch and create a half inch gap between the boxes. Since the wall cabinet is standard 12" wall cabinet depth, the face frame of the pantry and wall cabinet do not touch, leaving only a quarter inch gap between the boxes.

This would obviously make it so the wall and base cabinets are not directly in line vertically with each other.

What should I do? 1/4" plywood? Get a hardwood board and stain it? The cabinets are already finished. Buy a wall cabinet spacer and rip it? I'm a little lost here. Any help would be appreciated.

just get a matching filler and rip a narrow strip off it. Measure the overhang carefully so the filler is the same width, probably 3/16", depends on the cabinet manufacturer. I fasten them with a 23 gauge pin nailer then with screws through the side of the pantry wall, through the filler and into the cabinet style.

The gap between the base cabinet boxes will be covered by the counter.
