Your plan sounds great! LSAT scores are good for five years, and there's no real disadvantage to using a score that's a few years old. That's even more true if you use those years to do something unique and productive. Ultimately, your goal for scheduling the LSAT should be to find a time where you can perform your best, and where you will be applying within the five-year time frame.
The other potential concern about applying a few years after your undergrad degree is that you might have some trouble obtaining academic letters of recommendation. I recommend getting those letters prior to finishing school so that your recommenders have you fresh in their minds, and can write a detailed letter for you. Getting those letters in advance will be helpful for you to hit the ground running when you return.
