While reading Lois Keener Ventura's book on bandsaw boxes I noticed she placed the back of the box against the fence when she cut the back off. I have only made a few boxes and cut the back off to the right of the blade. Just curious what the advantage of having the back against the fence might.

I would think it is a good habit to get into if you ever do a natural front or any type compound curve on the front.

Other than that I like to have my thinnest cut against the fence.
