unique (for me) bracing technique

I fit and glued the back lining and the rear bracing today. I posted two pictures on the photos page. This is a departure from the usual. I had always attached the back back bracing to the back, in the traditional way. For this instrument, I moved the rear bracing off the back, to allow for the back to vibrate freely. I am hoping the free floating back might add something to the sound on this instrument.
