Transition piece/ Sliver tile cut

So I miscalculated my final door piece and somehow will end up with a 3/4" gap when I thought I would be cutting 3/4 off. Its 1" to the hardwood. The tile is about a 1/2" higher and I was gonna use a reducer transition piece regardless.

I don't mind a sliver by the door but would it make more sense to cut out the hardwood to put a bigger piece? I could potentially slope it even since half would be off the uncoupling layer.

Thoughts are appreciated, thanks!

Edit: Also while I did cut the door jam, I could glue the pieces back. Is this 1 inch gap still perfect for a reducer transition piece. Is that something custom out of wood or would a big box store have it

I think a "T" molding or a reducer would work out well....

I wouldn't install a tile sliver. I'd make the wood reducer span the whole space.

I've tiled the floor with a large format tile modified thinset and the redguard uncoupling layer (which promotes using modified thinset I beileve).

I have some messy joints that I would like the clean up and it will be 84 hours by tomorrow morning since the last tile was laid. I realize its probably way harder to clean stuff now but is 84 hours enough to be able to walk on the tile? I want the highest chance of success and to avoid tile failure so I can easily wait a week if needed. Research had varied results. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Edit : 1/2 mortar and 6x24 tiles
