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:

It was originally a mirror and a table, and I'll tell you the answer to that one.

You look in the mirror and see what you saw. You take the saw and cut the table in half. Two halves make a whole. You escape through the hole and yell yourself hoarse. You get on the horse and ride away!

See how easy that was?


Umm... That's nice except for one small flaw...
You're in a room with no windows/doors/openings of any kind, and no light source. How are you supposed to see anything?

I have a quick question... If there are no openings of any kind and no way out, how was there a way in in the first place? I don't see how you can get locked in a room you can't get inside...

It started out as just a slab of steel. The man feel asleep for a few years and when he woke up, he was trapped in the steel room.
To get out, he either started a fire with the table and saw and killed himself and went to hell.. ( Escaped )
Or he didnt use the saw and table at all, starved to death, and went to heaven.

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?"


While exceptionally flat, a paper is just a rectangular prism - it has 8 sides, 6 faces and 8 vertices

I'm trying to make one up here this is the best i can do...

you are in a room with only a door, the wall opposite the door is thin, you can't hear if there's anyone in the next room or not, you need a means of finding out, there are no items apart from the door, what do you do?
<_< i know it aint great but best i can do :(
Spoiler for answer

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.
