Do you folks do all the finishing pre-assembly or just staining? Or do y just do all finishing on the panels?

On my blanket chest I was considering finish the panels entirely, Sand, seal a cell, sand 3 coats of arm-a-seal,
Then do the panel glue up, sand and finish the inside of the 4 panels and the top, then glue up the 4 sides and the base, finish the outside, touching up what is needed… Does this sound right?

Thanks ahead of time!
