Posted on Assemble first or finish first? Is there a way that I am missing?

Ummmmm… (That’s me processing a plan)

Thank you both for your input. I am thinking that I will definately finish before I attach the trim to the frames. Right now, I am planning on protecting the surfaces that I will glue from the finish instead of glueing over the finish. After the finish has cured, I will install the trim. I will let the corner arch details “float” behind the smaller trim that will be attached to the larger frame. I am hoping that there won’t be too much movement from the panel, it is MDF with a veneer on both faces.

I wish that I have thought of your suggestion Kjuly, of installing the panel afterwards with trim on the backside. That will give me something to think about the next time I do a project like this.

Thanks again and I will keep running this through my mind. I am not quite to the finishing stage but it will be coming soon enough.
