Step 1: Attach the Railing

To get a nice seam, cut the rails at an angle. Set the compound miter saw at a 45-degree angle and cut the edges of the paneling to give a beveled cut (Image 1).

Measure and mark the stud locations on the railing. Nail the railing directly to the studs.

Use a laser level to set the placement of the rail over the seam (Image 2).

Use impulse nailer to secure the rail to the paneling (Image 3).

Step 2: Protect the Paneling

Apply coat of sealer to protect the wood.
