    A bit more morbid. Break the mirror, slit your wrists with a shard. Death is an escape.

    Problem is that this doesn't use the table. But you don't really need the table in the above "saw" solution either since the critical part is making a "whole". I.e. just break the mirror, put the pieces back together to make a "whole" and escape.

    How about this. The mirror is on the wall and is actually a big two-way mirror (like an interrogation room). Now take the table, use it to break the mirror and escape.

    Smash table

    Take table leg

    Smash mirror

    Take shart of glass from mirror and use your shoelaces to lash it to one of the table legs

    Take another table leg and get/put a nail sticking out of it

    Use these two tools to beat yourself in the head until dead or skewer yourself in the temple. Since there are no doors or windows, it means you must have been born there, and what a craptastic life that would be having to stay there.

    How high are the walls? Without a ceiling and short walls, I'd just climb over.

    Doesn't have to make sense, but they could have dropped you through a hole in a pre-built bunker then sealed the opening while you were drugged.

    There are no "doors" or "windows", but there are openings for doors and windows.

    OK, here's the definitive "non-tricky" answer for a fully sealed room :D!

    If it's a wood or wood/plaster room then break the table and mirrors and use the sticks/legs and shards as tools to make chinks, cut wedges, lever slats off or bust through plaster, making a hole any way you can.

    If it's a brick or concrete room, find the spot of uncured mortar or concrete that is the freshly sealed opening and use the tools as above on the weak spot in the room. (Caution: don't break the table until you're sure the weak spot isn't in the ceiling, if it is you can only break off one table leg.)

    If it's a steel room that's been welded/riveted closed then:
    - break the mirror into two large pieces
    - break the table into pieces
    - stick the two mirror pieces into two legs used as handles
    - use the other two legs to rub together and start a fire
    - put all the fuel together to build the hottest fire you can
    - blow as hard as you can on the fire to get it even hotter
    - hold the mirror pieces on either side of the fire
    - hope you can hold the mirrors exactly parallel
    - hope that the mirror surfaces are flat to within 1/4 wavelength or better
    - there is an infinitesimal (hah!) chance you have created a laser which can burn a hole through the steel
    - if not you're dead anyway because you just consumed all the oxygen in the room :(
