Here are three slightly different types of multiplication tables:

1) Dave's Math Tables: Multiplication Table
It contains a normal table with a nice little exercise on multiplying by 9.

2) Multiplication Table Applet
Multiplication table applet - Notice that zero is not included and this means
that the number of squares (the area) represents the answer.

3) allmath.com
You might want to use the option to create an empty table. Plus the table 
goes beyond the normal limit of 12 x 12.

Rather than print out a multiplication table for your students, give your
students large sheets of grid paper and have them construct their own class
times table.

You might have individual students create columns and rows of the chart. Give 
each student a strip of the grid paper - for example one student gets
the horizontal 4 strip, another student gets the vertical 5 strip. The 
student with the 4 strip starts with O and adds 4 to the previous entry (0, 
4, 8, 12...). You've now given the students an additional addition (sorry for 
that) exercise, plus you have given ownership of the multiplication table to 
the class. The better students should be given the two digit strips and the 
teacher should do the zero and one strip. Spend time discussing the one 
strip. It doesn't do anything that is an important mathematical concept.

Hope this is what you were looking for.
