The table may be deployed independently from the benches. The table may be deployed, with the benches maintained in nested storage within the table envelope, without requirement to deploy the benches. Tables may be formed by several suitable methods including fabrication from wood, framing with metal and wood, blow molding, tumble molding, vacuum forming, and the like.
