I never saw this anywhere before and maybe I missed it but here you have it:

Before binding, after the top and back are on, use your binding bit and cut a recess all around, smaller in both height and depth than the bindings. Makes so you don't have to sand end grain when flat sanding the sides, works great and takes the plates out of play when leveling the sides.

I plan on trying it on my next build.
