    If you want to have a nice seam, then you can cut the rails with some angle. You can use the compound mitre saw to set the angle to 45 degrees. Thereafter, cut the edges of the rails to give them a look of bevelled cuts. It will not only add beauty to the shape of the rails, but also, it will increase the life of the rails. Usually, rails with sharp corners get broken with a slight hit with anything. Therefore, the bevelled edges will stop the rail from any damage.

    You can now measure the stud locations and mark them properly, where you will use the impulse nailer to nail the rail with the studs. Take the laser level and use it to place the rail over the seam of the wall. Make sure all the sides of the rail are properly levelled. Otherwise, you will end up giving a tilted look to the rails.
