Woodwright mystery?

Hi All,
I remember exactly when I first became interested in woodworking. In 2005ish it was a Sunday afternoon, I came home from the University and watched a little tv. Woodwright Shop was on and and Roy was making a Roubo bookstand. I thought that it was pretty cool and that I could do that. So, I went out, and bought a set of orange chisels and a piece of pine from HD. I chiseled a couple of the joints but I never finished the project. I was residing in an apartment at the time and didn't have a bench or really any woodworking tools.

Now fast forward to present. I've restarted the book stand for the wife's birthday gift. I looked up the woodwright episode and the listings show that it aired in 2011! Did I travel through time to see that episode? I'm positive of the year I saw the roubo episode, and it wasn't 2011.

Can anyone unravel this mystery?

Maybe it was a rerun...first in 2005, again in 2011.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

I looked through all the listings and the first time it came up was in 2011. It's strange.

There is a video of Christopher Schwartz making one of these too. I want to make one!

As far as your mystery nbo, maybe he redid it or they rereleased it?
