The stairs were built poorly and I actually had to rebuild the bottom step completely. I used the cement board because I figured it would beef up the stairs a little bit more as well and cost wise it was not much different.

BTW, it was a huge pain to put down that board and the tile on those stairs. Each step was a different size, out of square and not level. My dad did the tile on the stairs and it took him a whole day (he is not a tile guy). It took me over two hours just to install the durock on those stairs, the same amount it took me to install the bathroom hardee floor and the kitchen

Most cabinet builders incorporate a toe-kick into the base units. With new installs, they furnish a 1/8" thick by 4" high by 8' long trim specifically for that area. No shoe or base there. Nice looking work, though!

You might find that when you are standing and working at that counter that your toes will hit the molding.

If it bugs you just take it out.

Gary already mentioned that the cabinet suppliers usually provide the 1/8" wood for the purpose. If you don't have it, it's only a piece of 1/8" plywood which is finished to match the cabinets (usually).
