stand alone tables

Say I wanted to construct a table, just a table, independent of any graph etc.
Just like the example but without the bar chart.

What is the simplest ( i. e. easiest ) way to do this ?
  In the code it says to use the Tables class to gain more control but this involves some detail work that I am trying to avoid.

If there is no clever solution to which I am oblivious , I'll give the Table route a go.
