    This is THE list of tutorials for LightWave, maybe you can find something there.

    What kind of table are you trying to make? You may want to just check out some basic modeling tutorials if you can't find anything as specific as a table.

    Simple Table

    Probably the simplest table would be to select the Box tool 'X". Press 'n' to get the numeric box up and create your table top. Play with the beveled edge options to get nice rounded corners. Once you like what you see, press 'Enter' once or twice until the numeric box goes blank (If it was in numeric edit mode, the first 'Enter' sets the number being edited, the second 'Enter' creates the box).
    Sometimes I segment up the box so I can get polys in the corners to bevel legs from ... but much simpler ....
    Use the box (or disc if you want round legs) and model up a table leg ... when you've got something you like, copy and paste it into the places you want legs. Voila, ready for texturing and a few coffee table books.

    Hope that helps you get started.
