Hmmm. There is a myriad of ways to assign permissions to tables, how you do it is going to be up to you but this sounds like the making of a management nightmare. Since there is a 1:1 correlation between users and tables, you will have to create a table for every single user and, depending on how many potential users you have, the management of said tables becomes unwieldy. I would probably use a single database table for all users and then filter the data coming out of said table based on a given user.

I can not honestly think of a good secnario where I would want each website user to have their own single table in my database.
