I wood glue & then nail the frames with 1 1/4" 3d brads. I use grooved bottom rails. For attaching the wood spline to secure the foundation at the top, I use 9/16" Arrow staples and tap them flush with a small hammer.
I use 2 ea 1in brads thru theend bars into the top bar and use the supplied nails thru the bottom bar into the end bar because it is way too fragile. the head on the nail provides a nice fat surface that doesn't punch through the groove.
