    Good morning Joe,

    We have started installing and are about finished with the first upstairs room. So far so good. But I now have a question about finishing the first row along the railing floor board.

    As I come out of the room, I plan to follow your recommendation and temporarily fasten the first row of boards to the floor to ensure the hallway floor is parallel to my line. I have laid out a couple of boards to help visualize my comments. They are not the final boards we plan to use so can be moved.

    My question has to do with the final piece that will go into the corner and is outlined in red. I am planning to undercut the wood and slip the board under both pieces of railing wood. But the board in the corner needs to go in last. It seems like it will be difficult to slide it under both pieces of wood and fasten in place with it being the last one installed.

    Would appreciate your recommendations. Thanks
