Art has the right stuff about wheere to look for adding Scene tabs. After you've made some scenes, you can go to View>Animation>Settings and set the transition time and delay time. The delay time determines how long SU pauses at each scene. To get an animation go to View>Animation>Play and SU will run through the scenes. If you have transitions enabled, it will move smoothly from one scene to the next.
The table you're thinking of, Aaron, is a draw leaf table. I animated it by putting copies of the components that move on different layers and then setting which layers are visible for each scene. then I exported the animation. The Pro version gives you the ability to export animations but the free version does not. Sorry.
