Backsplash question in kitchen (glass tile)


Hi all,

I'm a fairly new DIY'er, and have recently installed butcher block countertops in our kitchen (we feel they turned out great!). We're now adding glass tile backsplash, in four sections. Two went great. The third section went up well, but the counter is not level so I have a gap at one end.

How does one handle this? I'd have to cut some pretty thin tiles to fit in that gap, but I don't think I can fill it with caulk.

Ideas? I can't post a link to my picture until posting at least once.

Thanks,
Bluelakeside

I've decided to try caulking it first, to see if the gap becomes a little less visible. I'll post pics after I finish grouting and caulking this week.
