Get that farmhouse look Joanna Gaines made famous on HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” with the rustic chic Trestle X farmhouse table (prices start at $650 for a 60-inch by 36-inch table).

Handcrafted by Pittsburgh-based Wooden Whale Workshop, the table is made from reclaimed pine barn wood. The company was started by accident in 2014 after Greg Wynkoop brought home a trailer full of barn wood and his wife, Amanda, made him build a table from it.

In the time since, Wooden Whale Workshop — which boasts a long waiting list — has constructed close to a thousand custom farmhouse tables from pine barn wood, maple, reclaimed oak and various species of live-edge slab wood.

Tables are sold online through the company’s website. The Wood Whale Workshop also will host a pop-up shop May 7 at its studio in Freeport.
