- quote
A chabudai (卓袱台 or 茶袱台 or 茶部台)
is a short-legged table used in traditional Japanese homes. The original chabudai ranged in height from just 15 cm to a maximum height of 30 cm. People seated at a chabudai may sit on zabuton or tatami rather than on chairs. The four legs of a chabudai are generally collapsible so that the table may be moved and stored easily.

Chabudai are used for various purposes, such as a study table for children, a work bench for needlework, and most importantly, a dinner table for the entire family (shokutaku (食卓、しょくたく)). In the winter, the chabudai is often replaced by a kotatsu, another type of short-legged table equipped with a removable top and a heater underneath.

chabudai gaeshi ちゃぶ台返し tea-table flipping
is a Japanese phrase meaning to flip [the] chabudai.
Literally, it describes the act of violently upending a chabudai as an expression of anger, frustration, and disapproval. Chabudai-gaeshi may also figuratively describe an analogous outburst and upheaval.
Video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto is notoriously well known for "upending the tea table" if a game's development didn't meet his standard or needed serious reconsideration, and characterized chabudai gaeshi as an "action of old-fashioned Japanese fathers" which "would destroy the family" if attempted literally in modern Japanese society.
