Here is my question. I have two 30 inch boards that the sides are mothered to 22.5 degrees each the full 30 inches. What is the best way to connect these two boards? Wood glue and brad nailer or what?

If you don't mind the nail holes you could glue and shoot some nails in that joint. It would look better if you would run a spline in the edge of it and glue it together. Masking tape would be enough to hold it together until the glue dried.

The easiest way to run a spline on the parts you have would be to do it on a table saw. Just tilt the saw over to 22 1/2 degrees and run it edgewize down the center of the board. Then cut a thin strip of wood that fits snugly in the groove.

Use a router table:

Table saw:

As you can see, there are 2 ways to make the spline, across the width internally OR across the face of the boards at 45 degrees, so it it visible as a decorative accent.
You can make the above type joint using a handsaw also, IF you can cut the groove accurately. Then remove the waste with a chisel and flie to clean it up.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

if the joints are tight, you only need wood glue and clamps. but brads can hold until the glue sets.
