I tested the following in LO in Win 7. I suspect it will be insensitive to both LO version and OS.

  1. In your source document, select the table.
  2. Copy it.
  3. Generate a new Writer document.
  4. Paste the table into it.
  5. File>Export>as png.
  6. This will create a png image with just the table, since it's the only thing in the new file.
  7. Discard the file.

I do not know any direct way. You get good quality, if you export the table to pdf. Then open the file in Acrobat Reader and use its snapshot tool to extract the table. Or you export the table to png. But unfortunately the export does not react on "selection", so that you need to use another app to reduce the image or cut the table out of it. Both, export to pdf and export to png, is in menu File.
