This fantasy logic problem where words have alternate meanings (usually related t homonyms)
You saw the table in half; but the two halves together; two halves make a whole (hole) and you crawl out through the hole.
Here is another one for you:

There is a room with no window's, doors, or any sort of opening, the walls are solid steel 10 feet thick, and you are trapped inside, left only with a saw and a table.
How do you escape?

Going back to the original puzzle, I would think it might be possible to climb on the table and cut a hole in the ceiling. The puzzle only states that the walls are solid steel 10 feet thick, not the ceiling or floor. If cutting a hole in the ceiling does not work, you could try the floor, but it is very likely that you are at ground level and may have to dig a bit.

I like comperr's solution and subsequent puzzles. I just took my approach due to another puzzle I have encountered. "How many sides does a sheet of paper have?"

Spoiler for Solution

comperr: I am truly stuck on that one I can't think because there are so many possibitilties
but I suppose you could always click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like home", "There's no place like home", "There's no place like home".

Riddari: The cieling is too high for you to reach with the table, and try cutting through a steel floor with the ground underneeth it.
