transition between tile and wood

Anybody have a pic handy of T molding between tile and hard wood. The hacks on this job before me left a horrible transition between tile and wood floor. It goes from tight to almos 3/8 gap in spots. Cutting it all the tile back to the 3/8 reveal will look real bad, but I can't convince them that a t strip will look better. They r out of tile so popping them up and replacing them isn't an option

If its super crooked and want to get the illusion of square I usually cut the bottom part off and drill and hand nail them square to the door casing.

If the gap is close enough I make a sliver on the table saw and glue it in(-1/16-1/4) , but 3/8 is a little big for that. Made some that big for full refinishes in body of hardwood floor.

They opted not to go with a strip in there, so I had to grind in place a straight line (well an equal reveal not necessarily straight) and caulk the entire thing. About 26 linear feet. But they say they are going to replace the 2000' floor and kitchen in phase 2 of the remodel (of a 3 year old, never lived in house) which will be in April.

You guys should see the hack work of the tile guys that were in there before me...wow...hopefully I will remember to take pics tomorrow.

Might not be able to do if you don't have extra wood or can't get a good match but if you have a common finish or extra leftover wood why not either do it or get a decent hardwood guy to cut back the hardwood and picture frame it for a flush transition.
