My daughter got hold of an old trunk, which became my project. :-)

I lined it with tongue and groove cedar boards for a closet. The trunk is not square, is bowed etc. I am making 1/4” quarter round moulding from the scrap wood to cover the seams between the parts of the inside of the trunk and lid. I’m wondering what is the best way to install the small moulding. Shooting brads, would crack the moulding, and I can’t clamp it. I’m considering a faster drying glue, and/or tape to act as a clamp.

Ideas for a better way?

If I just use glue and tape, what would be a good glue for this application?

Pin nailer and a dab of glue. Pins are tiny. Smaller than needles.

You could pre-drill the holes for the nails
