Animated Object, Attack Table | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Attack tables are magical constructs created from tables. Their extra legs (and sometimes arms) give them advantage in combat. In addition, mages can train these constructs to use magic items such as wands or rods to make them deadly combatants.

Construct Nature. An animated object doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep. The magic that animated an object is dispelled when the construct drops to 0 hit points. An animated object reduced to 0 hit points become inanimate and is too damaged to be much use or value to anyone.
