Hello,

I'm planning to install a picture moulding in my dining room.
The walls are lath and plaster. Can anyone tell me what the best way to attach the wood moulding is?

I'd prefer not to attach it with adhesive/glue such that it could be modified in the future.

I generally dont like to hammer nails because I'm afraid it will vibrate the lath and damage the plaster

Does a finish nailer cut down on the vibration and potential plaster damage?

Or, is it best to drill pilot holes before nailing?

I've never done any trim work before, so any and all advice is welcome.

Thanks
