Redford, I will generally finish the inside of my casework before assembly because, as you mentioned, it is easier to get to it- especially where the corners are concerned. I will mask off any areas that will come in contact with glue. And you are right the prefinished pieces may get scratched during the milling and assembly process. However, this is easier to correct, in my opinion, as opposed to trying to sand and apply finish inside of the cabinet.
