Mark the length of the location of the studs with your level and pencil. Measure the length of the ceiling in the opposite direction that the beams are running. Transfer this measurement to your first board. Cut it to the size of your miter saw.
Hold the board on the ceiling with the side grooved of tongue and groove ceiling facing the wall. Pull two nails into the face at each point where the board crosses a beam. Measure and cut to your next plate. Press it in place next to the first, the locking groove of the new edge around the tongue of the one that was hung earlier. Fix the plate by tossing a nail in the middle of the side of the tray, just above the tongue, at an angle upwards, at each point where the plate crosses a beam.
