Advise on furnace register under kitchen cabinets?

I'm adding a few more cabinets in my kitchen and have a furnace register that will be under one. I would like for it to exit in the toe kick of the cabinet. Do I need to add an elbow and ducting or can I simply just put a register in the to kick?

In my own kitchen .... I put an elbow on and a short piece of duct.

It never occurred to me to just put a register over the toe kick.

We just use the underside of the cabinet as a plenum chamber and just put a register on the kick. Opposite of PJ, I never thought about ducting it.
