I've made a sill to go on top of two half walls, but I'm unsure how to attach them. Would be easy enough with some finish nails, but I don't want any fasteners to be showing if possible. The only thing I can think of is to nail a cleat down and rout a channel for it, but I'm hoping there's an easier option. There's a stud below that joint compound. Any ideas?

I made this counter top about 3 yrs. ago. Had the same problem as you as to how to attach. Well, she is glued and screwed! The 3/4 poplar is screwed to the header in the knee wall then I pre-drilled holes upward in the line of the molding shown. When the top went on, I drove 11/4" screws upward through the poplar and into the counter top. The counter top was laid in a bed of liquid nails. The base molding was inverted with the wide part hiding the screw heads. No one knows exactly what was done except me and my son and now all the LJ's and you.
